Please use the phraseology "if the given group of selectors (selectors) is 
invalid, the UA must raise...", rather than referring to the group of 
selectors containing individual invald selectors. For example, this:

   foo,,bar

...is an invalid group of selectors, but doesn't contain an invalid 
selector per se (unless you consider the nothingness between the commas to 
be an invalid selector, which I suppose is arguable).
