>       o The terminology "key-entity pair" was actually intended,
>         instead of key-value pair. Example 43 illustrates an extension
>         of collections, but the text was not clear. It is now changed
>         as follows: "The following example shows how one can express
>         membership for dictionaries, an illustrative extension of
>         Collections consisting of key-entity pairs, where a key is a
>         literal."
>       o This example of extension of collection is inspired by a
>         notion of dictionary, defined in a separate document.
>       o Keys are defined as literals, and therefore follow the
>         production. Some literals, such as ints, don't need to be
>         quoted. Strings are double-quoted, qualified names are single
>         quoted.
