Section 8 says:

   Options:

      This field encodes binary indications of the presence and
      significance of any options.  It also directly encodes some
      options.

      bit 0 set => One or more Option Extensions are present

      bit 1 set => One or more Options are network-significant

         Note that this bit is clear when OPT_FRAGMENT and/or
         OPT_JOIN are the only options present.

      bit 6 set => Packet is a parity packet for a transmission
	 group
      of variable sized packets (OPT_VAR_PKTLEN).  Only present
	 when
      OPT_PARITY is also present.

      bit 7 set => Packet is a parity packet (OPT_PARITY)

      Bits are numbered here from left (0 = MSB) to right (7 =
	 LSB).

      All the other options (option extensions) are encoded in
      extensions to the PGM header.

It should say:
