This is consistent with other element hiding exception rules now - we apply those before we can know whether the filter in question matches anything on the current page, so the usual hit counting approaches won't work. While we could still count them for CSS property rules, if #3969 is resolved the way Sebastian proposes it (only count CSS property rules when they affect an element of the page) this won't work any more. We need a new approach, resolving this as a duplicate of #4509.
