	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.
