Section 2.4, pg. 6 says:

2.4.  SHA-512

   [...]

|  The SMIMECapabilities attribute value indicates support for SHA-384
   in a SEQUENCE with the capabilityID field containing the object
|  identifier id-sha384 with absent parameters.  The DER encoding for
   this SMIMECapability value is:

      id-sha512: 30 0b 06 09 60 86 48 01 65 03 04 02 03

It should say:

2.4.  SHA-512

   [...]

Rationale: Undetected copy&paste error, but significant
