The downside would be that the amendment is disconnected from the context, which would penalize the reader to also consult the underlying agreement. The second approach, which confirms the amended provision as a whole, avoids this problem. A middle ground would be to describe the amendment in the recitals. The rules of good practice. One of the general principles of wording is “to be correct.” This means that if an amendment involves adding, deleting or replacing less than an entire provision (a word or two, a sentence, a sentence or perhaps a listed clause), the author usually has two options.
