The weak precedence parsing technique for context-free grammars is
usually defined with the following restrictions:

1) empty rules are forbidden, and

2) somehow strong conditions are put on the similarity of right-hand
parts of grammar rules.

I am particularly interested in knowing about techniques that improve
weak precedence's parsing power by relaxing these two restrictions.

References are most welcome.
