OR Filters With Excel Cube Functions

Chris Webb shows how to build an OR filter in Power Pivot:

Now, imagine that you want a report with the Sales Amount measure on columns and Years on rows, and you want to filter the data so that you only see values for Mondays in July or Wednesdays in September. Using the Fields, Items and Sets functionality you could filter the data to only show the day/month combinations you need for each year, but since you can’t put a named set into the Filter area of a PivotTable you would have to use Excel formulas to sum up the combinations to get the totals you need

I’ve never used Excel’s Cube Functions.  Looks like something to add to the to-learn pile.
