It does.  What it says is "arbitrary expressions will not work", and I
would agree that's vague if you insisted it was <wink>.  What it means
is that parameters are fine, but things like

@eatme and deco1 or deco2
@random.choice([deco1, deco2, deco3])

are right out.  Note that the PEP still contains examples of
decorators with arguments, and the people who want decorators most
need them to accept arguments.
