The problem is that you can deduce the status of visited links indirectly without accessing the link in the dom. This is because a link which contains text is rendered in a way that takes up space on the page. If a visited link changes the size of its container you'd be able to deduce that a link was visited by examining the container. You'd need to taint the entire dom at that point.
