Bug 198147 introduced a check for sub-selectors to know the property whitelist to apply.

I think the right fix is not to parse :matches(::before) to begin with. It just doesn't really make much sense that webkit parses stuff like `:matches(::before):matches(::before)::before`. 

Other pseudo-classes like :host() or pseudo-elements like :host-context() don't allow pseudo-elements in the grammar for this very same reason.

Also, in case you disagree, the check introduced in that bug wouldn't produce the correct behavior, I bet (haven't built myself) that that patch would stop the background / width / etc. from applying to the <li> element in the following test-case:

<!doctype html>
  :matches(::marker, li) {
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    background: green;
