I had missed @document, thanks for sharing!

On scanning I wonder whether @document isn’t rather complicated, and
would deem the @-rule format a bigger issue than the likely repetition
of selectors as proposed with [host=]. @document doesn’t seem to be
much of an advantage over just using a separate style sheet, an option
always at our disposal, whereas [host=], as a selector, would allow
for easy, DRY domain-specific adjustments.

I’m not sure whether that also explains hesitation on behalf of
implementors, however as it stands I still see merit in exploring a
selector version of @document. Is there anything else we might be
missing here?
