This seems worth being a bit pedantic about, to make sure we all share the same 
understanding:  I take your interpretation to mean that the RFC Editor can, on 
their own initiative, fix the problem(s) that Julan has raised and that it does 
not require changes to the about-to-be-published document.

Is that correct?  Do others agree?  (I hope so.)
