Not easier necessarily, more beneficial for authors for sure...  Less
confusing perhaps than some of the other things discussed in other threads
in terms of why you might treat it a bit differently - with something
custom it's more expected or acceptable to have slightly different
characteristics... For "native selectors" the wins target very specific use
cases (by comparison) and anything short of "it's just like everything else
save potentially more costly feels like it would be confusing and viewed
more as an excuse than a legit reason to be different.  IMO.
