(PLEASE) correct me if I'm wrong, but on the "Initializer" rule 
at the line with ExpInitializer should not have a colon after it. 
Just spent many hours troubleshooting and I believe my problem is

correctly applied in the language?

Yes, definitely looks like a documentation bug. In all other places, there is always another symbol on the right hand side. Ali

People who read those pages down to every colon deserve to suffer. :o) (Actually, I think you implied that one of your tools is parsing that page.) Ali
