I'm inclined to agree with Michael Rys. One could argue that the "M" doesn't
capture the fact that this case is slightly different from any other in the
table, but the table is only a summary, and the detailed rules are clear in the
text. In fact the situation for NOTATION is explained in the very sentence
after the meaning of "M" in the table is stated, suggesting possibly that the
author of the table was aware that "M" didn't fully cover the situation. 

I think we need stronger justification than this to make changes: there must be
a plausible case that the specification does not make it clear what behaviour
is expected.
