Section 126.96.36.199 contains an inconsistency in the description of how end tags
for valuetypes are written. Consider the case where an unchunked value (V)
contains a chunked value (CV1). Should the end tag for CV1 contain a nesting
depth of -2 or -1?
The following sentence in the spec seems to imply that the correct value is -2:
> The end tag is a negative long whose value is the negation of the absolute
> nesting depth of the value type ending at this point in the CDR stream.
However the spec also says:
> The outermost value type will always be terminated by an end tag with a
> value of -1.
which is not true if the end tag for CV1 is written as -2, since no end tag
with a -1 value will be written.
Delete the second above sentence from the spec.
