These clarifications would pertain to the c14n specs, right? I believe the signature spec says that you always use an implicit c14n transform if the output is a node set and the next step requires an octet stream, so the text you're looking for would be a clarification to the c14n specs.

Since they currently are written with respect to taking a "node set" as input, what's the misleading aspect you're trying to clarify?
