Section 1.10 says:

1.10.  Long Extension Format

   This format is applicable for non-skippable extensions which carry
   information more than 256 bytes.

It should say:

1.10.  Long Extension Format

   This format is applicable for any extension (skippable or non-skippable) which carry information more than 256 bytes.

Notes:

As per description in 1.11
" This format is compatible with the skippable extensions defined in
section 1.9. It is not applicable for extensions which require more
than 256 bytes of data; for such extensions, use the format described
in section 1.10."

However 1.10 specifies that it is applicable to only non-skippable extensions, so what would be the format for skippable extensions of size more than 256 bytes?

The correction will specify that any extension (skippable or non-skippable) shall use long format if its length is more than 256 bytes.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Pete McCann, chair of MIP4 held a discussion about this in the WG and the conclusion was that the errata should be rejected.
