I agree with this.  I think a lot of authors would get confused if you
asked them whether :not(a.foo) is the same as :not(a), :not(.foo) or
:not(a):not(.foo), but if they had an actual application, they'd be
very likely to understand what it means in practice.  :not(...) means
"everything other than ..." -- it's about as intuitive as you can get.
