Section 7.3. The ::selection pseudo-element

The sections about the pseudo-elements ::first-letter and ::first-line explain 
in detail how they are inherited. Unfortunately this part is skipped in 
the ::selection part. 
Especially interesting is if child styles can overrule parent ::selection 
style (and also if ::first-letter or ::first-line can overrule ::selection 

So is it:
<span>This text has part of it 

Or does it like ::first-line "split" the children:

<span>This text has part of it</span>

In a way the later seems more natural, just really hard to write with
