Hello Maksym, thanks for your comment. You are right, the published
version does have this typo. W3C's publication process does not in-
clude provisions to fix such typos, once a draft has been published
the expectation is that it does not change and changes are made only
in new drafts. As Anne pointed out, we will have this problem fixed
in the next version. Does that address your concern?

We will update the published draft later this month; changes are not
immediately reflected on http://www.w3.org/TR/XMLHttpRequest because
the W3C publication process attempts to find a balance between some
level of stability and keeping interested parties up to date through
new drafts; On http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html
you can read more about this process.
