Section 4.4 says:

   Key            aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
                  aaaaaaaa                          (20 bytes)
   Data =         dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddd                              (50 bytes)

It should say:

   Key  =         aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
                  aaaaaaaa                          (20 bytes)
   Data =         dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
                  dddd                              (50 bytes)

Notes:

Notice the equal sign missing after "Key"

spt: This is clearly editorial and no implementer is going to be confused by this so I marked it hold for document update.
