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.
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.
Pete McCann, chair of MIP4 held a discussion about this in the WG and the conclusion was that the errata should be rejected.
