This -- to me -- is a natural kind of mistake to have made when working under
great time pressure. Most important, it is an error of form, not of substance
-- and very visibly so. People who know what supra and infra mean -- including
all lawyers and probably many academics -- will be impressed by the wonderful
job you have done, not by the occasional formal error. If the USPTO were to
reject your submission because of this minor formal error, correcting it
wouldn't help. They would manage to find some other excuse.
If anyone wants to find Stoltenberg-Hansen or Boolos, it won't be difficult.
(The obvious place would be the supplementary document, with its 77 footnotes.
They are right there, near the top.)
Let me suggest that you look on the bright side. If this is the worst error
that someone criticizing your effort can find, you are doing very well indeed.
If there are other errors that are considered more serious, this will be lost in
