How proving that you're unable to provide a quote to back up what is, 
quite simply, a blatant lie.

The word "missing" appears nowhere in ITU-R TF.460-6. There are no 
appendices in the standard. Finally, in ITU documents, annexes are 
normative.

"1.8.2.2 annex: An annex to a Recommendation contains material (e.g. 
technical detail or explanation) which is necessary to its overall 
completeness and comprehensibility and is therefore considered an 
integral part of the Recommendation...

1.8.2.3 appendix: An appendix to a Recommendation contains material 
which is supplementary to and associated with the subject matter of the 
Recommendation but is not essential to its completeness or 
comprehensibility..."
- ITU-T A.1 (10/2008)

I've already quoted the relevant part.
