No, IMO it depends. At some point the result might not more
reflect what the original requester intended, and then you'd
also have to update the name in the "requester" field. As an
example, I liked Stephane's update of my "mis" request. But I
probably wouldn't like Mark's update for this example, Mark's
version should not be submitted to IANA with my name on it.

If the final versions are somewhere on public record it's
good enough, the requester can then appeal any "mutilations"
(as opposed to "improvements") of her or his request. It's
a judgement call. A rule where you can't fix typos without
explicit confirmation of the requester would be stupid.
