double patenting rejections in designs?

Design Section 1504.06 points to MPEP 804 (revised 2006) with regard to determining whether a one-way or a two-way double patenting rejections would be appropriate. I suggest that 1504.06 should instead refer to Section 1490, which was revised in 2008 and contains more up-to-date guidance on the topic of one-way or two-way non-statutory double patenting rejections.
