Package name semantics

The 2017-05-18 update of JLS introduces the concept of
unique visibility, but still has this unchanged sentence:

"The package name Q.Id names a package that is the member named Id
   within the package named by Q."

If "the" in "the member named Id" is to be taken literally, then
the specification still doesn't work, as I may elaborate if needed.
But I assume, dropping "the" in favor of "a" or a similar change
easily fixes this to reflect the intention, right?
