From my experience folks exclusively mean ancestor querying. Eg, they want a child to own how it responds to a class or state findable further up the DOM. @bkardell had it right when using the `<` character, as a way of visualizing the intent `.dark < .my-component {...}`. I dont know anyone who's aware of `:has` when talking about this topic.
