Working Group Resolution (LC-2863):
Thank you for your comment.  The terms used in the examples are general in
nature because this is a general technique and is not specific to any  one
technology.  When the example indicates that there is a "section" at the
bottom of the document it just means another part of the document. We hope
that this helps clarify your understanding of these examples.

Related to the lone bracket, we will remove that.
