I assume(d) the content property in this context is referring to the 
CSS3 content property, without requiring the CSS3 version to be used.  
iow, it does apply to :before and :after (as CSS2.1 syntax); But also 
applies to foo { content: bar; } and other cases.

But, if the WG has a better answer, I'd be pleased to hear it.
