Conflict in vim packaging policy

I was just reading the vim packaging policy [0] and noticed an
inconsistency between the specification of registry files and the
examples at the end.

In 3.3 "name" is mentioned as a required field, while in the examples
there is an "addon" field instead of the "name" field.
It looks like vim addons (and even vim-runtime.yaml) are also using
Can you please confirm that "addon" is the field that should be used
and correct the specification accordingly?


Kind regards,
