By "we" I mean "CSS as correctly implemented". There's certainly no reason
why those other browsers couldn't do so; there are no compatibility hazards
here AFAIK.

I don’t think this is relevant to the current discussion

I believe it is relevant. People keep saying that the current CSS
definitions make "in" etc useless. I don't agree.

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in
us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned,
we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." [1 John 1:8-10]
