By the definition of "relying parties", end users are "relying parties".
Categorically stating that end users have been required to assess legal
CA documents is plain wrong. Adding e.g. "some" in front of "relying
parties" would fix it. However, this is only an incorrect historical
reference, with no implication for the spec, so not a big deal.

Agreed, the cross reference might be a bit much, but other edits look good.
