Yeah, the original Japanese description for the Ribbon says "all", but it somehow felt like an exaggerated claim when I did my testing. Your new info definitely raises the question of whether to alter the translation or not. I'm curious though, which statuses does the Ribbon not protect against?
As for the "weak to poison" stuff, given that there are actual poison spells, etc. I wasn't sure whether I should veer from what Tsushiy wrote or not. The difference between Poison and the new Darkness element has always really confused me, as it seems like it's not a complete 100% replacement? I dunno, it's a weird mess.
Anyway, if the Ribbon does indeed not block everything then it's absolutely for the player's benefit that I fix the Ribbon's description. But I can envision people seeing "weak to darkness" and not realizing that Bio, etc. spells are the spells to use, so I need to think about how to handle it. Maybe just saying "bio/darkness" in that weakness string would help?
Tsushiy made some mistakes which is why, so editing the Ribbon I feel is ok. A couple other examples of his are one of Cyan's Bushido (I think Snow/Yukikaze or whatever you named it, sorry haven't seen that far yet) said in the description it did just wind damage+silence, but it does ice and wind+silence from the data. Just small errors like that on his part (and they've been fixed in 2.9.4.). Same with Sabin's Chakra saying Poison+Disease and it's only Poison.
Ribbon only guards the ones I listed, everything else will land.
As far as darkness goes, one moment, this is from Tsushiy's files:
He changed the element to darkness, so anything weak to poison now it'll just say dark. Poison itself is just an ailment otherwise the spell itself deals water-elemental damage+poison. The description for Bio says "deals medium-elemental darkness damage". "Weak to bio/darkness" would be fine, the other dark-elemental spells are Scourge, Catoblepas, Bad Breath, Acid Rain, Galaxy, Shadow Flare, Almagest, Bio Blaster, Poison Fog, and Poison Frog (your names might be different).

Found another couple of small errors; White Wind says "cures poison", it actually cures sleep.
And Wind Slash is being called Blizzard Fist here (Vargas did it as a normal attack and now Ashura did it, Mog's one Dance may do it also (as well as Guard Leader's rage) but haven't seen it yet. Something to check at least).
