Section 4.4.3.1. says:

The Key ID field is defined as an OCTET string in IKE.  For this name
type, only exact-match syntax MUST be supported (since there is no
explicit structure for this ID type).  Additional matching functions
MAY be supported for this ID type.

It should say:

The Key ID field is defined as an OCTET string in IKE.  For this name
type, exact-match syntax MUST be supported (since there is no
explicit structure for this ID type).  Additional matching functions
MAY be supported for this ID type.

Notes:

'only A must be supported' is ambigous.
Does it mean 'A must be supportet and anything else must not be supportet', or does it mean 'A must be supportet and anything else may be supportet'. The next sentence clearifies that it is the second interpretation.
