Documentation bug? User-ID XML API has double closing tags

The XML API documentation for 7.1, 8.0, 8.1, and 9.0 appears to have an extra closing tag for the <uid-message> object.  You can see it on the following pages:

The "User-ID mapping for a login, logout, or groups." action has the following listed for the XML:

<uid-message>
  <version>1.0</version>
  <type>update</type>
  <payload>
    <login>
      <entry name="domain\uid1" ip="10.1.1.1" timeout="20">
      </entry>
    </login>
    <groups>
      <entry name="group1">
        <members>
          <entry name="user1"/>
          <entry name="user2"/>
        </members>
      </entry>
      <entry name="group2">
        <members>
          <entry name="user3"/>
        </members>
      </entry>
    </groups>
  </payload>
</uid-message></uid-message>

Note the second closing </uid-message> tag.  Is that a documentation bug, or do you really need to send the closing tag twice?

Thecextra closing tag is redundant, we'll correct the documentation
