Section 2.8, says:

      ChangeSubjectName ::= SEQUENCE {
          subject             Name OPTIONAL,
          subjectAlt          SubjectAltName OPTIONAL
      }
      (WITH COMPONENTS {..., subject PRESENT} |
            COMPONENTS {..., subjectAlt PRESENT} )

It should say:

      ChangeSubjectName ::= SEQUENCE {
          subject             Name OPTIONAL,
          subjectAlt          [1] SubjectAltName OPTIONAL
      }
      (WITH COMPONENTS {..., subject PRESENT} |
            COMPONENTS {..., subjectAlt PRESENT} )

Notes:

Both Name and SubjectAltName use the same tag (SEQUENCE) so it is not possible to distinguish between the two fields without having a tag on one of them. This fix adds an (arbitrarily chosen) tag so that it is possible to differentiate the two fields.
