Aha, but then there's still a wording problem: in

  a simple selector (excluding X and Y)

the parenthetical reads like it *modifies* "a simple selector"; i.e. it
gives the impression that X and Y *are* simple selectors but are not
permitted in this context.  I suggest just deleting the parenthetical
or replacing it with a cross-reference to the actual definition.
