All right, I see what you're saying. I was offering the presence of the passage in the book as evidence for such a scene existing.
Precisely.

Moreover, based on what you said, I don't see any reason whatsoever to suppose that the scene exists. Occam's Razor applied in that instance doesn't yield the result you suggest, since your list of simpler possible explanations for the error [...] isn't complete.
Feel free to offer more.
I decline, as it would serve no constructive purpose. (Yes, I knew I might be asked, when I said that.) Especially in a thread such as this, when there has already been heated contention of the facts, there is no need for pure speculation in the service of what amounts to only an academic issue.

I believe that the best remedy is simply for the author to correct all uncovered mistakes in future editions. The author himself can choose to offer explanations for why they occurred, as he sees appropriate.
