Section 2.3. says:

   Example:  if size :over 100k { # this is a comment

It should say:

   Example:  if size :over 100K { # this is a comment


The small "k" after the 100 is invalid syntax according the ABNF.

"8.1. Lexical Tokens" defines a number as:

number = 1*DIGIT [ QUANTIFIER ]
QUANTIFIER = "K" / "M" / "G"

Either the Quantifier needs to be extended to allow also lowercase characters or the example needs to be corrected.
