In section 2. it says:

"UML diagrams [UML] are used in addition to the infoset formalism
 for purposes of illustration. These diagrams are purely informative,
 and in cases of discrepancy  between the diagrams and normative prose,
 the prose is definitive."

I really do think that the prose and the diagrams must be consistent
with each other. Otherwise I suggest to drop the diagrams.

In other words: the sentence does not build confidence in the readers
mind ;-)
