Thanks.  I agree with the conclusion to leave it to later outside
this series to define what --no-(include|exclude) should do.

I suspect something along the lines of

    Each element on the single list is marked as either include or
    exclude, and "--no-include" would remove the accumulated
    "include" entries in the list without touching any "exclude"
    elements.

would be sufficiently clear and useful, perhaps.
