If, however, for the purpose of limitation an amended description and/or drawings are presented together with the claims, these are to be checked, but only for compliance with the requirements of Art. 123(2) and Art. 123(3) and Art. 84. Note that in this respect amendments made to the description solely in order to improve the patent, or cosmetic changes which are not necessitated by the limited claims, cannot be allowed.
