Just a quick note here that there could be another use case related to
errata. The WG could decide that they had received notice of a spec
problem that warranted an erratum. The spec problem might be a matter of
under-specification or of conflicting verbiage.

In formulating the erratum, the WG should consider all DoV that are used
in the base document. The erratum may specify different behaviors for
different implementer options granted by DoV, may create new deprecated
or discretionary items, and may apply more constraints to the DoV. The
erratum may spawn new Test assertions.

The SpecGL would remind the editors to check all the guidelines, helping
to ensure that the errata actually increase accuracy of reader/implementer
understanding of the material.
