In short, receiving clients have to appropriately deal with replacements for non-last stanzas.  And as clients are certainly going to have to deal with this MUC, seems no big deal for them to deal with it general.

The spec originally allowed previous non-last correction, and the
community cried foul so I removed it.

I can add it back in if the community has now changed its mind!
