"Also, on the subject of the '::' CSS3 pseudoclass indicator, is that only going to be enforced when CSS3 is specifically called for, or are older pages (especially those which don't indicate any CSS level or namespace) going to be broken?"

It's pseudoelements that use the :: notation. Pseudoclasses use the : separator.

I think that the : notation will still be allowed for pseudoelements introduced in CSS 1 and 2 only. So you'll still be able to do p:first-line {font-weight: bold}. However, you will not be able to do body:selected {color: #0000ff}, as the selected pseudoelement was introduced in CSS3. You will have to do body::selected {color: #0000ff} instead.

The : notation is, I believe, no longer supported for -moz- pseudoelements, however. This has broken some themes.
