My opinion:
I found that a small amount of tearing in the screen has practically no effect on how the REV flies as the sail is usually stretched well when that happens.

Repairing:
I have repaired the screening simply by sewing a piece of screen over the torn area.

I agree with John's opinion completely, and I've always retired a kite long before the venting was so tattered that I would have had to patch/replace it... 2-3 years of flying.
