The concept of "pseudo-element" is a syntactic concept, no?  What each 
one does is defined in a one-off way, and doesn't have to be defined in 
terms of the DOM at all.  There are various extension pseudo-elements 
supported in various browsers that have nothing to do with the DOM (even 
in the limited way that first-letter, first-line, before, after do).
