It seems that all errors you reported are only in the changes document. 
"nNow" appears only there, and there is a blank between the section and the 
"6.3.8" in the specification document itself. Section titles included in 
references were in italics before we used section numbers. We now have 
replaces them by a [section number]:[section title] schema, where the section 
number is the one of superordinate section. This schema actually is only used 
if a section does not have a number. In all other cases, only the number is used.

See above. There is a colon between the section number and the sub section

That's a change we plan for OpenDocument 1.1 only.

You are right. We should correct that in ODF 1.1 as well.

Since the references are in a "for further reading see" style, I personally 
think it is oky to reference both,
