Section 5.3 says:

5.3.  SA Cache Timeout (SA-State Timer)

   Each entry in an SA Cache has an associated SA-State Timer.  A
   (S,G)-SA-State-Timer is started when an (S,G)-SA message is initially
   received by an MSDP peer.  The timer is reset to [SG-State-Period] if
   another (S,G)-SA message is received before the (S,G)-SA-State Timer
   expires.  [SG-State-Period] MUST NOT be less than [SA-Advertisement-
   Period] + [SA-Hold-Down-Period].

It should say:

5.3.  SA Cache Timeout (SA-State Timer)

   Each entry in an SA Cache has an associated SA-State Timer.  A
   (S,G)-SA-State-Timer is started when an (S,G)-SA message is initially
   received by an MSDP peer.  The timer is reset to [SG-State-Period] if
   another (S,G)-SA message is received before the (S,G)-SA-State Timer
   expires.  [SG-State-Period] MUST NOT be less than [SA-Advertisement-
   Period].

Or define the [SA-Hold-Down-Period] refers to.

Notes:

There is no definition of [SA-Hold-Down-Period] timer in the document. We should either remove the reference of [SA-Hold-Down-Period] from 5.3 or clearly define what [SA-Hold-Down-Period] refers to. If not, this will cause confusion for implementation.
