This has been discussed before on the list, as I recall, but one issue 
was that something like:

   :not(a.foo)

is, at least to some people, ambiguous.  Does it mean

   :not(a):not(.foo)

or does it mean

   :not(a), :not(.foo)

or something else?

It seems to me that the ":not(a), :not(.foo)" meaning is what's meant, 
though....
