That's right, I didn't express it that clean.

I suspected something like this ;)

IMO the principle Ian mentioned is a strong reason against such a selector,

Basically, I'm glad if there was at least *one* solution for this case, so I
accept a way via ':has' and ':matches' pseudo classes as well.
