A few more changes that I think are needed:
* in 3.3.3, "The identifier of an argument is given by the identifier
terminal in the Argument, and the type of the argument is given by the
Type. If the Type is a scoped name, then it MUST resolve [...] to an
interface or typedef." this should reference also dictionaries
presumably

* likewise, I think 3.8.15 should reference dictionaries as possible
resolution of type names

* in 3.4, "Dictionaries MUST NOT be used as the type of an attribute,
constant or exception field"
- Can dictionaries be used as the type of a dictionary member?
- Can I use arrays of dictionaries in either of these positions?
- Is it that Dictionary can only be used as part of operation arguments
(and if so, shouldn't it be stated as such)?
