The CSS Working Group just discussed `[selectors] decide on :blank`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: [selectors] decide on :blank<br>

&lt;dael> fantasai: Previous discussion wanted to see if :empty can ignore whitespace. Currently if you have any whitespace it's not considered empty. Believed that was super confusing because usually whitespace goes away. Collected compat and lots of websites use empty<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Not seeing if anyone was using empty in a way that specifically expects whitespace to not match empty<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: My take is more investigation on web compat would be good. Don't know if anyone else has opinions<br>
&lt;fantasai> s/Not seeing/But no one did a random sample to see/<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: chrishtr you commented?<br>
&lt;dael> chrishtr: Data we have so far is whitespace appears on 2% of page loads. Without a bunch more work we wouldn't be able to confidently change<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: I didn't have the data. Is any way to create a random sample of some pages with the data and I can do a human look?<br>
&lt;dael> chrishtr: It's http archive which you can query. Have you used that?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: No<br>
&lt;dael> chrishtr: I'll point you to it offline<br>
&lt;dael> chrishtr: I don't have other context on this so I don't know how critical it is and if it's fine towait.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: I don't think it's urgent<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Next step is analyze data?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Yep<br>
