Yes, a good point. Thank you Steven.

I find it hard to sit here and listen to PAS being discussed as if it had
some sort semantic value which made it function like a mathematical
operator. It does not and it is easy to find lots of examples where it does
not mean "all without exception."

I did a search on PAS + ANQRWPOS in the GNT and the first two examples John
1:9 and 2:10 could not mean "all without exception."
