It would require a good amount of work by the editors or other closely
involved members of the working group to ensure that said work was done
correctly, that the complete examples were valid and in good style, that
they didn't inadvertently contradict what is in the specification, etc.
And even then, given the number of mistakes in examples that have
already been fixed, I doubt it would happen without introduction of a
significant number of errors.
