Section 2, mid-pg.4 says:

   The use of LF without CR is questionable; see Appendix B for more
   discussion.  The newer control characters IND (U+0084) and NEL ("Next
   Line", U+0085) might have been used to disambiguate the various line-
   ending situations, but, because their use has not been established on
   the Internet, because many protocols require CRLF, and because IND
|  and NEL fall within the "C1 Controls" group (see below), they MUST
   NOT be used.  [...]
                                                    ^^^^^

It should say:

   The use of LF without CR is questionable; see Appendix B for more
   discussion.  The newer control characters IND (U+0084) and NEL ("Next
   Line", U+0085) might have been used to disambiguate the various line-

                                                    ^^^^^^

Notes:

The only relevant discussion of "C1 Controls" in the document
is in bullet 3 within the same section, on the preceding page.
Hence, "below" is misleading for the reader and needs to be
replaced to correctly say "above".
