Okay,  thanks for the explanation.

I (re)copied the fdl verbatim from https://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl-1.3.texi
which effectively makes the change you were proposing.

     I agree that changing a license text is a delicate thing.
     But there are 2 different texts of the FDL out there, and that link is the
     only difference between them, so I guess this is just an old bug.
     So the question is:
     which of the 2 texts of the FDL license is the correct one?
     The one from 'licenses' or the one from 'standards'?
     Who can clarify?
     Thanks & have a nice day,
