It is not clear to me if you have an issue with the invalidation and alternative service offering alternative(s), or just the location of the phrase in 2.4, paragraph 3. I agree it seems odd in the example context but I think that regardless of the invalidation. In certain use cases the invalidation may well be required, so I would prefer to keep it. If the list has some importance, the alternate could/should continue to offer such a list.

I've seen this PR (looks good) but not seen a PR about the above suggested removal.
