(I grew up around my parents' vocational school, board of education interactions looked totally insane)
Good thing you don't need your syllabus accredited to have an approved curriculum (and in fact not even sure there's such a thing?)
Also, accredited institutions make small changes to syllabi (such as the one you mentioned) all the time.
(e: Just noticed your comment down-thread, and now assume you're not in the USA. So edit, prepend "In the USA" to my comment. Relevant at least to the article I guess.)
We didn't really drop anything, an extra day appeared because they were already better prepared before starting the course with basic materials.
A syllabus -- per dictionary.com, "an outline or other brief statement of the main points of a discourse, the subjects of a course of lectures, the contents of a curriculum, etc." -- is required by a governing authority that presumably has an interest in what citizen/subject (per your local regime) are being taught. This seems legitimate in the general case.
Your syllabus can be "unit-n: overview of current layout technologies for www browsers". Problem solved, no?
