So one suggestion is we remove specific errors like single-bit errors,
multi-bit errors and such and limit the features to error handling,
detection and logging/reporting.
So we could drop these statements:
- Main memory must be protected with SECDED-ECC.
- All cache structures must be protected.
- single-bit errors must be detected and corrected.
- multi-bit errors can be detected and reported.

And change this statement to drop the restriction to "these protected structures":
"There must be memory-mapped RAS registers to log detected errors with information about the type and location of the error"
