TPD12S520: Recommended circuit arrangements

Part Number: TPD12S520

The datasheet (SLVS640E) specifies that I(LV), the bias supply current, is typically 1mA and maximum of 2mA. It is also specified that the LV_SUPPLY value must be from 1V to 5.5V.

This appears to contradict the "Typical Application" circuit in Figure 6 as a 10kOhm resistor is in the power supply line. This would generate a 10V drop for a typical supply current of 1mA. Is there a mistake in the bias supply current value?
