Thanks Richard. We will update this for the next release.

Also note, this text is considered "replaceable" for purposes of license
matching as per license matching guideline 2.1.3 and as indicated by the red
text on the website.
What about tracking and keeping the original text too?
Having only one text that is systematically marked up is not a great
solution IMHO.
For instance it makes the reuse of the text as-is impossible or
difficult in an attribution
notice and makes automation there more difficult.
This kind of usage is important and orthogonal to matching guidelines.

And editing for markup is conducive to small mistakes like the one
Richard found.
This is likely to be more frequent if you are adding XML markup on top.
So keeping the original unmodified text would be a good thing.
