Yes, that definition accompanies the section for the pseudo-class.  It's
perfectly clear.  The one line description in the summary in section 2 is
the problem the OP was thinking of, AFAICT.  Maybe the clarification the OP
was looking for would be resolved by appending a comment to the line for
E:empty to refer the reader to the full definition of "empty" in the section
that describes the :empty pseudo (at that part of the spec that link takes
you to)
