Section 3.3 says:

o  using: "String[]"

      The set of capabilities the client wishes to use.  The client MAY
      include capability identifiers even if the method calls it makes
      do not utilise those capabilities.  The server advertises the set
      of specifications it supports in the Session object (see
      Section 2), as keys on the "capabilities" property.

It should say:

o  using: "String[]"

      The set of capabilities the client wishes to use.  The client MAY
      include capability identifiers even if the method calls it makes
      do not utilise those capabilities.  The server advertises the set
      of specifications it supports in the Session object (see
      Section 2), as keys on the "capabilities" property.  The
      "urn:ietf:params:jmap:core" capability represents this document
      and MUST be included in the "using" list.  This is to allow a
      smooth upgrade path for future revisions to the core JMAP
      specification with different capability identifiers.

Notes:

The original text was unclear on whether the capability for this document (JMAP core) had to be included in the "using" list, or just those of extensions to JMAP core. Clarify that the "core" capability must also be included, and give the rationale.
