AFAIK it gets the HTML part right and also selectors with just one class per
element (", .bar .baz"), but "" should be avoided.

You'll get a very long 'className' after some hovers with this. Use a simple
function that only adds the string if it's not already set.
I'm not that much into DOM issues, but I think, 'className' should have been
defined to return an array, not a string. At least there should be an easy way
to treat strings as space or comma separated lists (other than '.split()').
