Section 12.7.4 says:

   o  The client does not have a copy of the data in its memory and the
      metadata server is no longer in its grace period; i.e., the
      metadata server returns NFS4ERR_NO_GRACE.  As with the scenario in
      the above bullet point, the failure of LAYOUTCOMMIT means the data
      in the range <loca_offset, loca_length> lost.  The defense against
      the risk is the same -- cache all written data on the client until
      a successful LAYOUTCOMMIT.

It should say:

   o  The client does not have a copy of the data in its memory and the
      metadata server is no longer in its grace period; i.e., the
      metadata server returns NFS4ERR_NO_GRACE.  As with the scenario in
      the above bullet point, the failure of LAYOUTCOMMIT means the data
      in the scope of that LAYOUTCOMMIT may have been lost.  The defense
      against the risk is the same -- cache all written data on the client
      until a successful LAYOUTCOMMIT.

Notes:

Errata 3 of 5 to deprecate loca_offset and loca_length arguments to LAYOUTCOMMIT.
