6.11.9, step 3.1:

  To me, this text:

    "If the browsing context is a top-level browsing context 
    (and not an auxiliary browsing context)"

  seems to imply that an auxiliary b-c is not a top-level b-c.
  This is subjective of course, but it might be a good thing to
  rephrase the sentence into something like:

    "If the browsing context is a top-level browsing context 
    which is not an auxiliary browsing context"

  or:

    "If the browsing context is a top-level browsing context 
    (but not an auxiliary browsing context)"

  Or, I guess it would also be possible to invent a new term
  for "independent top-level browsing contexts" or something
  in the same spirit.

6.11.9, step 3.1.2:

  "The browsing context's browsing context name must be unset."

  It might be good with a note that the browsing context name
  is only switched by the user agent for history traversal to
  another origin, and not for navigation to a new origin.

Best regards
