The agreement reached with the WAF group on the relevant public lists 
and now being written up by them and us is that you should include a * 
character, so your example, Charles, would be

[] a wdr:ResourceSet;
    wdr:includeHosts "";
    wdr:excludeHosts "*";

i.e. implies AND ALL its subdomains.

* just means the subdomains of but not itself.

(Actually, we should probably take a formal resolution in the POWDER WG 
to do this but it'll come up when we discuss the next iteration of the 
Resource Grouping doc)
