URL diff

See URL: the line «The Committee has the authority to engage independent [...]» is compared to «The Audit Committee will engage in an annual self-assessment [...]», rather than its previous version, apparently because the length of the line is more similar.
Bug 13462 is about paragraphs and whitespace, but whitespace is not a problem in this diff, so I think it can be considered a separate issue although maybe the solution will be the same.
