1: Note the example
http://joe:mypasswd@www.example.com:1234/example1/example2?query=help#fragment

is illegal, in that it does not conform with HTTP spec which does not 
allow username and password. Also the :mypasswd syntax is strongly 
discouraged in RFC 3986

2: Typo
<wdr:excludeHosts>video.example.com</wdr:includeHosts>

3: includeHosts
You seem to mean that includeHosts with example.org also includes 
www.example.org - in a quick skim I didn't see this stated explicitly, 
or for example that it does not include example.www.org or whatever; nor 
what to do if you only want example.org and not foo.example.org

4: I found example 4.6 I had to think fairly hard. If this is a standard 
idiom then it may be worth spelling it out a bit.

"all resources on example.com except those on video.example.com shot in 
widescreen format."
which is
"all resources on example.com except those on video.example.com, and
all resources on example.com except those shot in widescreen format."

5. The SHOULD under 4.7 is way too strong. I see no reason why the 
expression in 4.7 cannot be implemented efficiently and be generally 
useful; setting the expectation that Powder won't work well is not a 
good idea
