If you refer to this question:

It was posted the 25th Sept 2011, not "some days ago". It is true that
the most "voted up" answer (on 3 answers, not 6 or 8) is today a bit
obsolete about iD. But this is normal. iD is the new online editor and
is constantly evolving.

The other "systematic errors" you mention in your googledoc is more
about rendering issues.
