[rfc-i] normative illustrations vs text

i think the problem was the phrase "have precedence" which I meant in a technical sense. If A has precedence over B, then only if they disagree, and then you should agree with A.  I did not mean anything about relative scope, which could be anything.

Should I have linked to this definition?

I think that we agree then: if someone chooses to not look at the images but just the text then they don't miss anything that's required to implement the RFC, although they're probably making life harder for themselves.
