I'll just mention that the idea of having corrections in a separate 
errata (while leaving the original text as is) is supremely antiquated 
and not very useful for a standard - expecting developers to look not 
just at the word of the standard, but then having to jump to the errata 
to check that what they just read is actually correct?
