Thanks for noting this specific case and raising the general issue of errors in books for "old" releases. In most cases (including, I would think, this one), acknowledging the error and fixing it for the current release and future ones is sufficient.
The following statement has been approved by some people in Oracle Database documentation management: "We usually make corrections only for the next revision of the book for the most current available release and for upcoming releases. If there is a strong business need to make corrections also to published versions of the book for previous releases, we consider that on a case by case basis."
Did you ever consider publishing an erratum list for those books (of old releases) that will not get a later revision?
