That's great, but it still makes no sense to me.  I understand adding 
errata, but to not correct a broken link(s)?  It wouldn't be a 
noticeable change of wording or procedure, it would simply eliminate an 
error message(s).  Why generate an unnecessary error message(s)?  Mind 
you, I'm not at all militant about this and there are tons of things 
that make no sense to me (welcome to my life). It's just my take.
