Additionally I wanted to say that I don't think any of this belongs to the
errata document, this is merely stuff people got confused about when reading
the spec. We will fix this when then next version of the spec is edited.

> Issue: the "v namespace" prefix
> In the spec's examples we use several "fictional" namespaces, and mostly
