I think it would help a lot if there would be a motivation or some
sort of an explanation in addition to the OLD NEW text. As it is, I
have to guess what the submitter wants to achieve with these errata.
Since these are technical errata, it should be possible to describe
the problem/bug that is being fixed. It seems that the submitter is
trying to address multiple issues in those changes. Anyway, an
explanation would have been nice to have.
