Personally I would include parentheses to clearly indicate what the NOT
clause applies to.  For example,

( "Condition A" OR "Condition B" OR "Condition C" OR "Condition D" ) NOT
"Condition E"

is quite different than

"Condition A" OR "Condition B" OR "Condition C" OR ( "Condition D" NOT
"Condition E" )

I suspect that Frame is generating the message because of the ambiguity
of what NOT applies to.
