A bit less than eleven years ago, I released the first public Working Draft of the Selectors specification but the very first editor's draft of the spec (apparently lost) is dated 22-jun-1998... Almost twelve years! I have the immense joy and pride to announce today that the W3C Director, sir Tim Berners-Lee, has approved its advancement to Recommendation but asked that it not be published before the two normative references, CSS 2.1 and CSS 3 Namespaces, are themselves Recommendations.
