Gerv, this started as your ballot, so it's up to you - do you want to allow such minor edits without restarting the discussion period, or not?

If yes, you need to put defining / permissive language in the ballot.  I won't be comfortable if we have no written permission for edits, but then allow them informally later when ballots have errors - it needs to be in the ballot.

Let us say the answer to that question is "no". Then the obvious next question is: "how do you, the proponent of this idea, define 'obvious typo' in a way which does not open the door to substantive changes, or changes which people would argue about the substantiveness of, and without inventing Yet Another Voting/Polling Mechanism"?
