Section 5 says:

   An RPKI CA MUST include the two extensions, Authority Key Identifier
   and CRL Number, in every CRL that it issues.  RPs MUST be prepared to
   process CRLs with these extensions.  No other CRL extensions are
   allowed.

It should say:

   An RPKI CA MUST include the two extensions, Authority Key Identifier
   and CRL Number, in every CRL that it issues.  The Authority Key
   Identifier extension MUST follow the same restrictions as in
   Section 4.8.3 above.  RPs MUST be prepared to process CRLs with
   these extensions.  No other CRL extensions are allowed.

Notes:

RFC 6487 doesn't specify any restrictions on the format of the AKI extension in CRLs.
