I've also had languages that distinguish between "exclusive or" and "inclusive or" -- but these days I'd be more inclined to say "either ... or" vs. "and/or". The "inclusive or" is well-established in computer science, but could be confusing for casual readers (and I don't know whether it's a term that linguists use). More examples would always be nice -- specifically for some of the earlier sections.
