Other places the spec uses similar wording for if/else cascades (which is how I
believe Mounir read it) or conditions that need to be anded as opposed to
or'ed.

Seriously, just being explicit about which set operations should be applied to
the sets defined by the conditions instead of writing something that implies
something and then hoping that everyone, including non-native-English-speakers
will properly understand your implications seems like a no-brainer to me....
