Yeah, whether you write complex-selector in terms of relative-selectors, or vice versa, is an arbitrary choice. Because complex selectors are a more fundamental concept, I chose to base relative-selector off of complex-selector - in the spec, we don't talk about complex selectors as being built out of relative selectors, a relative selector is just a special type of complex selector that starts with a combinator.


Your edits otherwise look fine, @fantasai. None of them were *necessary* - the additional conditions at the end covered things just fine - but moving them into the grammar works just as well.
