It's obvious that `:empty` should be left as is, and a new pseudo should be used for elements that have no other content than white space. `:blank` is as good a choice as any.

Also, inputs should be entirely left out of this. It is coincidental that this can be used to detect empty textareas. This cannot be made useful for detecting values of inputs in general (consider selects). It's a separate issue, and would need a separate solution.
