Section 2 says:

    (10)  Conforming user agents must be able to distinguish
          encoded-words from "text", "ctext", or "word"s,
          according to the rules in section 4, anytime they
          appear in appropriate places in message headers.

It should say:

   (10)  Conforming user agents must be able to distinguish
         encoded-words from "text", "ctext", or "word"s (see the
         grammar in Section 3.3 of [RFC822]), according to
         the recognition rules in Section 6 of [RFC2047],
         any time they appear in appropriate places in
         message headers.

Notes:

Section 4 of RFC 2049 was not the correct citation.
