Oh, I didn’t remember /deep/. Done.

I did not find anything in the Selectors spec corresponding to '/' IDENT 
'/', so I assumed it was accidentally left over from the removal of the 
reference combinator.

The Selectors spec should include a section defining the general concept 
of named combinators, pointing out that (like pseudo-classes and 
pseudo-elements) they can be defined by other specs, possibly with a 
note about /deep/.
