neutral  Paul Sadur: "Omitted" and "omission" aren't exactly synomous. "Omitted" sounds more as if it were intentionaly deleted while "omission" could be any oversight as in "errors and omissions insurance. Perhaps "deleted" would be a better choice.

During the Nixon debacle, the infamous tapes were transcribed with the insertion of "expletive deleted" every time one of the particpants used salty language!
