Consider removing the -moz-bound-element pseudo-class
I was going through pseudo-classes for bug 1350140, and leaving comments with the missing ones, when I saw the :-moz-bound-element pseudo-class. This is somewhat tricky to implement in Stylo (doable still, I guess), but it seems completely unused, both in mozilla-central and in the addons code. We should consider removing support for it.
Not sure if I should ask for review... Should I send an intent-to-unship or something?
Since this is something exposed to web content, we probably should have an intend to unship.

So this was added in bug 71261 (quite old, hmmm) Given it is not used anywhere, I think it's okay to remove.

Pushed by email@example.com: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/1a2765fbc74e Remove -moz-bound-element pseudo-class. r=xidorn
I'd like to document it's removal at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/:-moz-bound-element, though first need to create that page. Jean-Yves, do you believe it's worth the effort or should we rather remove references to it from MDN? Emilio, what was the pseudo-class actually meant for? Sebastian
If it wasn't documented already, it seems better to just leave it undocumented.
Right, I agree with David. I haven't seen any reference in MDN apart from the one at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Mozilla_Extensions#Pseudo-elements_and_pseudo-classes.
Ok, I've removed it from the reference page. Sebastian
For completeness I've mentioned its removal in the 55 developer release notes: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/55#CSS Sebastian
