Section 3.3 says:

Since the maximum segment
lifetime in the net is not likely to exceed a few tens of seconds,
this is deemed ample protection for foreseeable nets, even if data
rates escalate to l0's of megabits/sec.  At 100 megabits/sec, the
cycle time is 5.4 minutes which may be a little short, but still
within reason.

It should say:

this is deemed ample protection for foreseeable nets, even if data
rates escalate to 10's of megabits/sec.  At 100 megabits/sec, the
