No the formulae are not wrong, they are just different thats all, and they do work just as well. Old dunk dip machines worked in this way when E6 first came in, sure companies like Photocolor simplified the steps to 4 many years ago, and others followed in their footsteps.

However E6 films are very closely related to C41 and both can be used with Ferricyanide bleaches and also Sodium Thiosulphate fixers.
