Good.

I do not agree. 'data' is entirely undefined - it means nothing. How
do I know that 'data' includes 'choice nodes'? I think we better fix
this here.

I agree that a general careful check of terminology should be done in
an update but I do not see why AUTH48 says we should not fix the
problem that was discovered. And for me, a fix is not a fix if things
are left ambiguous.
