An invariant segment wouldn't preclude this, I think. You can
add a new invariant segment that says "Though Worm Tongue has said
foo did the deed, I, Manoj Srivastava, do hereby state it was bar who
did it truly". And thus indelibly mark the disagreement in to the
copyrighted work forever more.
I think adding a section, stating the correction, may be
preferred to merely removing the incorrect statement -- and the
evolving history of the saga.
The reward of energy, enterprise, and thrift--is taxes.
