At least, a plain ‘:’ is the most obvious way of avoiding invalidating the
whole selector list, but maybe someone could find a more creative acceptable
approach.  For example, the ‘->’ proposal is actually not far from being
syntactically valid CSS2.1.  Some combination of the various available bits of
punctuation might also work, and be visually distinctive enough to avoid
confusion with the existing uses of the punctuation (which is the most obvious
disadvantage of using plain ‘:’).
