This is a very good point, and it's why we declared them all invalid in the
first place. Personally, I'm fine with any resolution on these three and
as far as I'm concerned the Selectors editors can make a decision on their
own. But I'm leaning toward leaving [attr~=""] as valid and matching nothing,
because that's what we already have interoperability on.
