Correct. It goes well beyond 85 and 109. It does so, because substantial change
is needed in the existing section text--indeed it was easiest to look at replacing the entire
section. So, perhaps Issue-14 is more appropriate, as Steve suggests:

Perhaps 85 and 109 are now OBE?

Anyway, let's discuss this Thursday. The TF hasn't even taken this
proposal up yet itself. This is a report and recommendation from the
ARIA Mappings Subteam we set up in April. It's probably a couple weeks
away from a TF recommendation to the WG.
