          Priority: P2
            Bug ID: 19814
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
           Summary: Sysex is not the only MIDI message longer than three
                    bytes
        QA Contact: public-audio@w3.org
          Severity: minor
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Windows XP
          Reporter: chris@w3.org
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: MIDI API
           Product: AudioWG

In section 7.3.1 Methods I see

"and also is not to be used for system exclusive messages (i.e. any MIDI
messages over three bytes in length)."

this is backwards. sysex is an example of a message that can take more than
three bytes; there are others (such as pitchbend, high resolution (14bit)
controller changes, and so on).

Suggested replacement:

"and also is not to be used for any MIDI messages over three bytes in length
(e.g. system exclusive messages)."

or maybe 

"and also cannot be used for any MIDI messages over three bytes in length (e.g.
system exclusive messages)."
