Wording of shared mime spec

The spec currently says, about glob matching:

"If several patterns match then the longest pattern SHOULD be used."

With the recent addition of glob weights, this sentence is missing "... of the same weight", isn't it?

This way *.tar.bz2 is preferred over *.bz2 (as was the intent of this sentence),
but still weights are obeyed, so that README.* loses to *.pdf
