(I'm not sure how the sentence was supposed to finish, but) I guess when I
was looking at this I either didn't look for the full modules or thought
that they were not normative in the same sense as the body text.

That said, a single errata report that does the same thing in multiple
sections is a little annoying, and we might be better off cloning to get
the desired effect, especially now that we have "view errata in line"
functionality.
