No, this would be a mistake in the wording.  I intend for formal documentation to update RIR data, and RIR data to update legacy data etc.  The exception would be if, for whatever reason, IANA has current data that conflicts - this is an artificial example, but for instance if IANA were to reclaim an address block I'd argue this should take precedence.

Thanks for catching this.  I'll work on revised text and submit an update.

Cheers,
