I think we should change it to a NOTE, but not REMOVE it.  It's really a "TODO" for some future version of the standard.  It turns out that there are other actual/actual systems, and by NOT having a standard way to access them, all spreadsheet implementations are doing a disservice to those users.

That said, we need to standardize what is standard TODAY, and later on work on standardizing extensions for the future.  How about this:

Note: There are other actual/actual systems, for which currently there are no standard basis assignments.  Future versions of this specification may add them.
