I think the spec is still a bit unclear.  Or, rather, it has a bit
of extra wording that's no longer doing anything.  I think you can
delete the text:

  # Five aspects of a DOM element are especially relevant for
  # selectors:
  # 
  #   * The element’s type (also known as tagname), which is a
  #     string.
  #   * The element’s namespace, which is a string.
  #   * An ID, which is a string.
  #   * Classes, which are strings.
  #   * Attributes, which are pairs of strings consisting of an
  #     attribute name and an attribute value. 
  # 
  # While individual elements may lack any of the above features,

since it's no longer relevant to what follows it.

(At this point it also makes it a bit unclear whether "featureless"
is still a good term.)
