Section 7, pg.30 says:

<<  second paragraph of section, at the bottom of pg. 30 >>

   The main advantage of a sender-based variant of TFRC is that the
   sender does not have to trust the receiver's calculation of the
   packet loss rate.  However, with the requirement of reliable delivery
   of loss information from the receiver to the sender, a sender-based
|  TFRC would have much tighter constraints on the transport protocol in
   which it is embedded.

It should say:

Notes:

Rationale:
Consistency in style broken by incomplete change since
RFC 3448; present tense is now used in the first sentence;
so it should be used in the second one as well, for clarity.
