For 2.0, we can't change a word of the normative document... but we can add
the exact same example into the 2.0 Understanding doc that will be in the
2.1 glossary.

So I propose a friendly amendment to have two changes.
1) Add the example to the 2.1 Glossary
2) Add the same example to the Understanding document for 2.0

Cheers,
David MacDonald
