I do fix those when I write the example.,However I have a feeling that
the example should go in policy document , as BCP the name specifies
'Current Practice'.

I do not see a strong reason not to include this example
in the policy document considering the fact that this example is focused at

1.  An example policy description, rules and their equivalent
     'Filter' and 'Action' code segment.
2.  Action part shows how an vendor extension access function
     can be used to clone the data path template.
3.  How we populate  data in pmPolicyTable, pmRoleTable, ElementTable  tables.
4.  Off course I tried to visualize the cloning part with tables, which is 
only for the
      purpose to support the example, not to focus on theory of 
differentiated services.
