Section ABSTRACT says:

The TCP/IP protocol family runs over a variety of network media:
IEEE 802.3 (ethernet) and 802.5 (token ring) LAN's, X.25 lines,
satellite links, and serial lines.  There are standard encapsulations
for IP packets defined for many of these networks, but there is no
standard for serial lines.  SLIP, Serial Line IP, is a currently a de
facto standard, commonly used for point-to-point serial connections
running TCP/IP.  It is not an Internet standard.  Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.

It should say:

Line IP, is commonly used for point-to-point serial connections
running TCP/IP. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Notes:

Status is INTERNET STANDARD however the title says it's non-standard and the abstract says "not a standard".

An update could also refer to PPP as a standard... I've removed the line saying there is no standard for serial lines.
