It's a mistake. When trying to make excerpts from the book available 
on the Web very quickly, the publisher did not synchronize with the
paper version. The paper version of the book has no mentioning of this
-- since noone knows what the future will bring -- and we will make 
sure the Web pages are corrected as well. 

I apologize for the confusion this has caused.
