Yes, this is a typo.

The issue text is copied directly from the member-only mail, so I don't
think you'll find any more info there.

The issue means that each start entity marker should have a corresponding
end entity marker.  The terminology probably comes from balanced
parentheses:

  balanced parentheses:  (((this) is) balanced)
  unbalanced parentheses:  (((this) isn't

The issue is that with an XPointer it is possible to include a part of an
infoset which contains individual start and end markers, instead of keeping
them in nested pairs, which results in a pretty strange (arguably corrupt)
result infoset.
