That document matches the v6.4 runtime that you are using.

The "runtime" package has a licensed eci.h, but the "sdk" has a BSD
licensed eci.h.  Please use the SDK for the header file if you don't
have the runtime.

The upstream eci.h header file is unlikely to change; therefore, I
recommend that you put your complimentary enumerations in a new file
called xeci.h.
