Hello James,
My understanding of F87 is  that one should not use CSS :after / :before to present essential content ... this is in line with F3 too.
In fact the text alternative computation link included in the reasoning for removal of F87 says:
"Note: Though the user agent may make efforts to compute a text alternative from CSS-generated text in the absence of text content determinable from the DOM, authors should not provide text through a style sheet, as the user agent may incorrectly determine the text alternative."

Regards,
Sailesh

     Following up on my actions today here are some proposals
 for 
 
     F87 and F89

     http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Aria-Edit:_F87
 
     
 
     These can be considered for next week's WCAG survey
 but have not yet
     been reviewed by the TF. I would like to encourage TF
 members who do
     not normally comment on the WCAG survey to make any
 comments they
     may have there.
