AFAIK there hasn't been any resolution on changes for 1.1 (or 1.0.1).
This doesn't qualify as an editorial change and it should at least be
submitted as a bug report on SourceForge so we don't accidentally lose
track of it.

IMO we need to start the process[1] of looking at issues like this one
and some fairly obvious (eg cut/paste bugs in some cases) changes - if
not a new release of the specification, then at least an errata


[1] I don't know what sort of 'official process' we are meant to use
for this but its clear we need one.
