Good catch ! Thank you. In fact, a warning about multiple subject
selectors was included in the first version of the document but it
automagically disappeared before going public. Just a mistake. Two
choices :

	1. more than one :subject in a selector should be considered
	   as an error
	2. only the last parsed :subject selector applies

Brevity maybe ; readability maybe not...
