[mpiwg-rma] Inconsistency of MPI_WIN_FENCE semantic

There is an inconsistency of MPI_WIN_FENCE semantic in MPI 3.0 Standard that makes me confused:
(1) On P440-P441 it say that "RMA operations on win started by a process after the fence call returns will access their target window only after MPI_WIN_FENCE has been called by the target process". This requires MPI_WIN_FENCE that starts an epoch to act as an barrier.
(2) However, (1) contradict with the word at end of P441: "a call to MPI_WIN_FENCE that is known not to end any epoch (in particular a call with assert equal to MPI_MODE_NOPRECEDE) does not necessarily act as a barrier".
Should the word of (1) add: "when MPI_MODE_NOPRECEDE is not given"?
