I think this deserves a few more words of explanation (we happened to
discuss it at the RFC Editor Advisory Group meeting yesterday).

The bug was introduced in the final rev before IESG approval.

It was noticed by, among others, the Gen-ART reviewer.

The General AD even put a short-term DISCUSS on the draft until the
bug was acknowledged by the authors. Clearly, it will be fixed
during editing.

However, the text of the approval message is generated automatically
from data in the tracker, so it automatically contained the bug.

Bottom line: the system worked.


P.S. I assume that the correct title is 'Terms used in Rusting for Low Power and Lossy	Networks'.
