Sorry. I don't accept such errata as normative. The > spec is clear an unambiguous. Not so unambiguous that parsers agreed on what version could contain. That's a problem that I raised a while ago (perhaps over a year, I can't find it in the archives). Some parsers accepted any string. Others accepted only 1.0. Others still accepted any number representation equal to 1 (1, 01, 1.00...). Given that everyone used the string "1.0" it never became much of a problem. Well, almost everyone: I became aware of the problem because one user had just "1" and was bumping into inconsistent behaviour accross parsers. Imho before that erratum that part of the spec was underspecified, and the erratum was a good thing.
