Section 4. says:

<dm:deviceID>urn:device:0003ba4811e3</dm:deviceID>
...
<dm:deviceID>urn:x-mac:0003ba4811e3</dm:deviceID>
...
<dm:deviceID>urn:device:0003ba4811e3</dm:deviceID>

It should say:

Replace all three with

<dm:deviceID>urn:uuid:698137d0-b395-11e0-aff2-0800200c9a66</dm:deviceID>

Notes:

"urn:device" is a not registered URN namespace as defined by RFC3406: Uniform Resource Names (URN) Namespace Definition Mechanisms. "urn:x-mac" is an experimental URN namespace. All <dm:deviceID> address point to the same device.
RFC 4479 in section 3.4. Device RECOMMENDS version 1 UUIDs for the <deviceID> element: "For devices with a MAC address, version 1 UUIDs are RECOMMENDED, as they result in a time-based identifier that makes use of the MAC address."
