Great example - it's reasonably clear but incorrect (as well as being
imprecise as you illustrate). We don't require a minimum of 3 independent

I don't have the time to look it up but there was quite some discussion
about this point some time ago. I seem to remember the IPMC agreeing the
docs need to be updated.
