Either he was allowed to change it or he wasn't?
I'm not sure what the point is you're trying to prove. Apparently the BBC and quite a few newspapers (not to mention legal representatives in the UK) are questioning the validity of the "request" for an extension as it was "made", and also whether any extension granted on the basis of that letter, and even the results of proposals/agreements made during that extension have any meaning. From what I gather BJ's action is also considered (by some EU parties) as taunting.
AFAIK having a document signed by the only party which has the obligation to write/send the document, does not constitute an amendment to the document. What is clear is that BJ was certainly authorised to sign the letter.
This whole episode just shows the weaknesses of democracy as we know it (despite the fact that democracy, in a sense, can block "majority" decisions being executed). (and NO, I can't propose any alternative).
I wonder how BJ's would (will?) react to a devoted Scottish independence movement.
