I find this very confusing for especially for "mixed{foo, bar}". People
would probably expect this to mean "mixed content with ordered foo and
bar" rather than a "group of foo and bar with any text node before or
after the group"!

Makes me think that I have a more general question about the rules to
read things such as: "p1, p2 | p3 & p4"... Are these allowed and how do
they read?
