!summary
D.4 defines two language-defined policies.
!question
D.4(1) says "It also defines one such policy." But the language defines two such policies. What is meant here?
!recommendation
D.4(1)'s wording should be corrected.
!wording
(See recommendation.)
!discussion
This is just an editing error. Obviously, the language defines two policies (FIFO_Queuing and Priority_Queuing).
!corrigendum D.4(1)
Replace the paragraph:
This clause specifies a mechanism for a user to choose an entry queuing policy. It also defines one such policy. Other policies are implementation defined.
by:
This clause specifies a mechanism for a user to choose an entry queuing policy. It also defines two such policies. Other policies are implementation defined.
!ACATS test
None needed.

I'm submitting this on behalf of Robert Dewar.

There are two language-defined policies: FIFO_Queuing and
Priority_Queuing.  Perhaps the sentence is meant to imply that this
clause defines Priority_Queuing, whereas FIFO_Queuing is defined in
9.5.3 and 9.7.1.  But then, "Other policies are implementation defined."
would imply that FIFO_Queuing is implementation defined, which is
clearly not true.
