Hi,
I cannot find :scope pseudo-class selector definition anywhere, but I've 
noticed discussion in this list about :scope in scoped style element 
(http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#attr-style-scoped) issues. 
If such pseudo-class is introduced, it could be a way to address my 
problem, sure.
