I know, but this text doesn't always apply. Otherwise :empty would not
work. Suddenly with :empty you operate on a different tree. It seems
you also ignored my comment about Shadow DOM.

Doesn't work for :empty. And still doesn't help with pseudo-elements
and such as the input for matching those would be the same.
