The UN says that "with or without quotation marks or indentation, the spelling used in the original text should be followed, subject to editorial discretion in cases where typographical and other clearly unintentional errors appear in the original. Such texts include communications from Governments and international agencies, laws, ordinances, and published matter such as articles or books" (351). Sounds good, except that the UN rarely indicates where it has made changes, which I consider indispensable.
