It sounds like the difference between what you are proposing, and the
:ui-invalid proposal that I'm making, is that your proposing a
specified set of rules that :<x> or :<x>-invalid should match, rather
than leaving it up to the UA. Is this correct?

If so, it sounds good, but I wonder if it will really work in practice
unless all UAs agrees to use the same rules for invalid markers and
thus all would have use for the :<x>/:<x>-invalid selector.
