I don't think your change to the comment actually says anything different;
an enum-specifier or class-specifier is a definition under the grammar in
the C++ standard. I wouldn't object to a parenthetical clarification, but
I think it's appropriate for the parser to refer to specific nonterminals
from the standard grammar.

Yes, that patch looks good. Would you mind checking it in along with
