It should say:

A corrected encoding of the certificate.

Notes:

In addition to the mis-encoding described in 6936, there are additional misencodings. The critical field of X.509 extensions have `DEFAULT FALSE` (per RFC 5280). Default field values shall not be encoded in a DER sequence, but in the certificate encoding presented there these critical fields are encoded.
