Ah, indeed.  In which case "the rules for matching pairs of (), [], {}, 
"", and ''" are not actually defined anywhere.  ;)

But clearly some curly braces are excluded from this.  For example:

   [myAttr="{"] { color: green; }

should match:

   <span myAttr="{"></span>

right?  I _think_ the intent is that once you see a '(', '[', '{', '"', 
or '\'' you must skip forward until either seeing another opening 
delimiter (in which case you recursively start skipping), or until you 
see the matching closing delimiter.

I agree this could be clearer.
