Section 4 says:

With one exception, extension headers are not examined or processed
by any node along a packet's delivery path, until the packet reaches
the node (or each of the set of nodes, in the case of multicast)
identified in the Destination Address field of the IPv6 header.

It should say:

With one exception, extension headers are not examined, processed,
modified, inserted or deleted
by any node along a packet's delivery path, until the packet reaches
the node (or each of the set of nodes, in the case of multicast)
identified in the Destination Address field of the IPv6 header.

Notes:

This is being handled in the 2460bis work.
