Subject: MS-ADTS missing RevMembGetGroupsForUser as a transitive operation Server Behavior of the IDL_DRSGetMemberships Method

The pseudo-code has this hunk in it:

/* Calculate all other cases (where op ≠ GroupMembersInTransitive).*/ transitive := op in {RevMembGetAccountGroups, RevMembGetResourceGroups, RevMembGetUniversalGroups}

However, it does not list RevMembGetGroupsForUser referenced in MS-ADTS tokenGroups, tokenGroupsNoGCAcceptable, which is clearly a transitive operation, as it says:

These two computed attributes return the set of SIDs from a transitive group membership expansion operation on a given object.

Can you confirm the docs are incorrect, and that RevMembGetGroupsForUser should be in that list?
