Funny, when I first opened the preview, the complete table of contents with page numbers could be read. The ISO document had far less pages then Draft 35 (951 pages). I wondered how this could be...
Now the ToC is without page numbers, so I cannot compare.

If you compare the ISO ToC and the Draft 35 one, you'll see that clause and subclause numbers differ. So old references like RM 3.5 will lead astray.
