Yup, you are right.  I will change the grammar.

I agree, they should be valid.  I will add more test cases.

I agree.  It is hard for me to see how this might be used.  In any case,
the relevant part of the PEP that I was following is:

"Endian-specification ('!', '@','=','>','<', '^') is also allowed inside the string so that it can change if needed. The previously-specified endian string is in force until changed. The default endian is '@' which means native data-types and alignment. If un-aligned, native data-types are requested, then the endian specification is '^'."

However, I am not quite sure how to interpret the last sentence.

No, there is no notion of scope here.  A given specifier is active until the next one is found.

D'oh!  I missed that when I merge over to py3k -- I started this work on trunk.  Thanks.
