I'm afraid this is like tabs vs. spaces -- there will always be arguments over it but nothing will ever change :-).

The reason we didn't allow for arbitrary pseudo classes was because the implementation was slower and the heuristics a harder to implement (which is also why we don't support selectors based on arbitrary property values). But in 8 the plan was to expose API so any subclass of Node could define its own set of supported pseudo classes.
