Then we should agree:  Since the punctuation or wording (or whatever the
right term is) is inarguably wrong, it's a bug.

I'm not requesing additional documentation, or rewriting more significant
than mechanical fixes.  That would be an enhancement request. 

I'm reporting existing writing errors, as concrete as a typo that rendered 
a sentence nonsensical.  That's a bug report.

Why do you disagree?

But how is that revelant to whether you accept this bug report or try to 
call it an enhancement request?

How would that reduce the amount of work required to fix the errors?  
The same amount of work still has to be done whether I do it or others do 
it.
