+ If <literal>EXCLUDING</literal> option <literal></literal> is specified

The empty <literal></literal> seems wrong.

+ after <literal>INCLUDING</literal> options, the specified thing is excluded

“thing” sounds a bit vague here (and in the last sentence as well), but I’m
also not sure what to use instead. “referenced objects" perhaps?

+1 on documenting the EXCLUDING option though.
