Excellent news, this was absolutely needed for ITS 2.0 to have
CSS-based ITS rules match the feature level of XPath-based ITS

Some comments:

- title of section 2.1 should be "Attribute node pseudo-element"

- I think the last sentence of section 2.1 should be clarified. Is the
   attribute node pseudo-element allowed in CSS stylesheets or not. Given
   the fact it is unlikely browsers will implement something that
   generates no boxes, I think that pseudo will remain invalid in CSS
   sheets to avoid the creation of the corresponding OM.

- I think you need a section 3 about Selectors API saying that the
   expectation is that non-element selectors will be usable in Selectors
