For the purposes of this API, I think the spec needs to define a 
modified syntax for a DOM Selector, which is similar to, but slightly 
different from a regular selector. The grammar production would be:

   : dom_selector [ COMMA S* dom_selector ]*

   : [ combinator ]? selector

Where the productions for "combinator" and "selector" are defined in 
Selectors.  The spec would then define that the parameter accepts a 
group of DOM selectors that matches that grammar.
