[802.3ae] WIS Test Pattern Error Counts

In 50.3.8 of D3.2 it is indicated that the WIS test pattern checker 
shall have the ability to synchronize to the mixed frequency 
test pattern and report bit errors detected within the payload 
to the Station Management entity.  It then goes on to describe 
the Section BIP, Line BIP, and Path Block error counters, but 
makes no mention of a Path Bit Error Counter.  Did I miss 
something?  The three counters mentioned above will function 
without a bit checker through the standard parity bytes.
I didn't see such a counter in 45.2.2 either.
