errata; and SCOPE_SYSTEM (if I'm being pedantic)

To make it clearer this this is adding support for new behaviour rather
than changing old behaviour, perhaps change "This doesn't help ...
While nobody uses it ..." to something like:

"This wouldn't help for detecting erratum workarounds with SCOPE_SYSTEM.
There are none yet, but we plan to introduce some: let us clean this up
so that such workarounds can be detected and enabled correctly."
