The *entire* errata page was from 6.0; it was a mistake.  This wasn't
some "put on the rose-colored classes and gloss over major issues"
thing.  It was a long release cycle and something was forgotten.  C'est
la vie.  It's always a good idea to check the most up-to-date version of
the errata page on the web anyway, so it's *not* too late to update it.

So, you're still waiting for Scott to personally fix the problems and he
couldn't deliver?  Huh?  I quote you
"Scott, thanks for the very generous gesture, but i cant ask you
something like this."
