Correct.

Good point. Do you want to change the formulation in sec. 2.3 like the 
above and update the change log?

Makes sense to me.

The sentence following the one you mention is also out of date:

" Pointing to existing information is not possible for data categories 
that express a closed set of values; that is: Translate, Directionality, 
Locale Filter and Elements Within Text."

How about replacing the whole paragraph by something like this:

"The [link] data category overview table in section 8.1. provides an 
overview of what data categories allow to point to existing information 
or to add information."

Best,

Felix
