Thanks for this important spot - I don't think it is a nitpick at all. I'm switching jobs at the moment, but I'll revise the post (and diagrams) in light of this. It might be a week though, sorry!

Also, I added one clause to my comment above: the bit about "imperfectly measured", which is of course usually the case in the real world.
