Hi Richard,

I won't change the document while the group is in the process of
reviewing the drafts since it may introduced some confusion about which
draft the Group should review.

Feel free to repeat the editorial error in the survey if you wish to. In
any case, we'll make the edit before publishing. Since this is minor,
I'm sure no one in the WG will mind. The Chairs might want to have this
in the public-html record before the publication.

Philippe
