I think my reading was a bit loose, in that I took the phrase in Incorporeal Creatures of "Mundane weapons deal only half damage, whereas runes and spells, which specifically target them deal full damage. " to mean "If the spell or rune targets the creature type with the Incorporeal Trait". Therefore, if you had a Spell vs. Demons and encountered an Incorporeal Demon, that your spell would do full damage, regardless of whether the spell mentioned "Incorporeal Demons".

If that was the intent of Incorporeal, then a clarification of the phrase in Incorporeal should be made to that effect. If the intent is that the Spell must specially target "Incorporeal" creatures, then an errata is needed as mentioned by the others.

I read it as for full damage a spell or effect has to mention incorporeal and not just the creatures base type.

Would a rune of hatred val effect a val with an incorporeal spell up?

That is how I initially read it, but I don't know if that was the intent. If it wasn't the intent, then I agree some errata is needed for Gladius to include Incorporeal.
