For #1, the correct size is 130x180mm (roughly 5x7, in size and aspect ratio), so the localized name is incorrect.

For #2, the missing "mm" on the end is a typo and unintentional.

I've found two possible typos in the standard:

1) 'om_medium-photo_130x180mm' has a localized name '120x180mm' on page 26 (IIUC the localized name is based on short dimension x long dimension values from self-describing name)

2) self-describing name 'om_large-photo_200x300' is missing 'mm' for dimension - this probably is not typo, because the name was carried from the older PWG5101.1-2002, but 'mm' should be there if we follow the logic of previous entries...

Would you mind looking into it whether the differences are intentional or are they really typos?

Thank you in advance!
