I have a particular use case where I would like pseudo elements to behave more like regular elements on the DOM, including being selectable. The use case is essentially: I have a consumable application that I'd like others to be able to use and style without getting into the nitty-gritty of building it. In principle, they would "just change HTML", however, I'm using a system that dynamically generates HTML with which few people may be familiar, and giving them some control over the style and descriptions on the page via CSS is desirable.
