Jeff was concerned about this (understandable) clause:

>    Changes should be requested only when there are serious omissions or

That is the case here. It may be simpler to leave it and add an errata in
the metadata exchange section that notes the mistake and suggests that
people SHOULD NOT pass around AffiliationDescriptor-rooted documents.
