Quick note on this.

The agreement reached with the WAF group on the relevant public lists 
and now being written up by them and us is that you should include a * 
character, so your example, Charles, would be

[] a wdr:ResourceSet;
    wdr:includeHosts "example.org";
    wdr:excludeHosts "*.example.org";

i.e. example.org implies example.org AND ALL its subdomains.

*.example.org just means the subdomains of example.org but not 
example.org itself.

(Actually, we should probably take a formal resolution in the POWDER WG 
to do this but it'll come up when we discuss the next iteration of the 
Resource Grouping doc)

Phil.
