I don't think it's safe to read standards that way. It's often muddled in standards what's meant as example and what's meant as normative text. It's not supposed to be muddled, but it often is.

Hmmm, that's not the way the Fortran Standard works. We have "normative text" and "Notes", which are "informative".


This all lead some on the WG5/J3 committee meeting last week comment on moving a sentence from a note to the "normative text" as to "dis-informative" them (you really, really have to love English for this).
