RFC 5022, "Media Server Control Markup Language (MSCML) and Protocol", September 2007

Errata ID: 1242

Section 6.1.1.1. says:

   o  rate - optional, default value "0": Specifies the absolute
      playback rate of the content relative to normal as either a
      positive percentage (faster) or a negative percentage (slower).
      Any value that attempts to set the rate above the maximum allowed
      or below the minimum allowed silently sets the rate to the maximum
      or minimum.  The rate reverts back to its original value when
      playback of the content URL has been completed.

It should say:

|  o  rate - optional, default value "0": Specifies the deviation of the
|     content playback rate from its normal value as either a positive
      percentage (faster) or a negative percentage (slower).
      Any value that attempts to set the rate above the maximum allowed
      or below the minimum allowed silently sets the rate to the maximum
      or minimum.  The rate reverts back to its original value when
|     playback of the content specified by the URI has been completed.


Notes:

There is perfect confusion between 'absolute' and 'relative",
leaving this specification open to gross misunderstanding.

I hope the proposed replacement text says what had been intended
to say; it also corrects sluggish language and applies STD 66 terms.
