I don't think our copies are paged alike, could you cite by section instead
Anyway, I think it should have said "The year zero is represented as
'-000000'." rather than "The year zero is represented as '-000001'."
And 1 BC would be the same as year zero thus '-000000'. Right?

I believe the consolidated table contains an error. Section 2 subsection
"Extension and Precision" rightmost column last bullet says "The year zero
is represented as '-000001'." But of course the notation other than AD/BC or
CE/BCE that is most widely known is astronomical year numbering, in which
the year 0 would be represented as 0000 in ISO 8601 notation. It is the year
1 BC that would be represented as '-000001'
when a profile had been agreed to that required six digits for expanded year
