It turned out that the model that crashed the validator was mine. The
problem was that I used Model instead of model. I would propose that
every location in the standard where the word model is in a monospace
font, it should be lower case. These locations include (I think this is a
full list, but I'm not sure):
4.2, 1 (twice)
4.2, 3 (twice)
Figure 5 caption
Appendix B, bullet 7
Appendix B, bullet 8
In my opinion, those changes would make the document easier to read.
