[erlang-questions] NIL_EXT [was: Erlang External Format]

One question... the LIST_EXT documentation on the website states the following:

Length is the number of elements that follows in the Elements section. Tail is the final tail of the list; it is LARGE_TUPLE_EXT  for a proper list, but may be anything type if the list is improper (for instance [a|b]).

By my investigation, proper lists should be described as ending in NIL_EXT instead of LARGE_TUPLE_EXT.  Could somebody please update the documentation accordingly?
