Section 2.4 says:

a)  first bullet (near bottom of page 9):
                                                              v
|  o  Both must be either a <local-number> or a <global-number<, i.e.,
      start with a "+".

b)  last paragraph (page 10):

   Since "sms" URIs can contain multiple <telephone-subscriber>s as well
|  as <sms-fields>, in addition to adopting the rules defined for
   comparing <telephone-subscriber>s as defined by [RFC3966], two "sms"
   URIs are only equivalent if their <sms-fields> are identical, and if
   all <telephone-subscriber>s, compared pairwise as a set (i.e.,
   without taking sequence into consideration), are equivalent.



It should say:

a)
                                                              v
|  o  Both must be either a <local-number> or a <global-number>, i.e.,
      start with a "+".

b)

   Since "sms" URIs can contain multiple <telephone-subscriber>s as well
|  as <sms-field>s, in addition to adopting the rules defined for
   comparing <telephone-subscriber>s as defined by [RFC3966], two "sms"
   URIs are only equivalent if their <sms-fields> are identical, and if
   all <telephone-subscriber>s, compared pairwise as a set (i.e.,
   without taking sequence into consideration), are equivalent.

Notes:

Rationale:
a) Distorting typo.
b) Although there is a rule '<sms-fields>', the components of it
are meant here, in plural: <sms-field>s .
