FWIW, I agree with John's write-up, except that the phrase MAY NOT 
is kind of misleading.  The spec says that an NVP may fail to detect
certain kinds of entity-related sins in the case that the entity
was declared where the processor wasn't looking and wasn't required
to look... the phrase MAY NOT suggests that the processor is forbidden
to do certain things. -Tim
