Section 5 (Table) says:

      [...]

      Port Media                       GigE (Gigabit Ethernet),
                                       POS, ATM, etc.

|     Port Speed                       1 gbps, 100 Mbps, etc.
                                         ^
      Interface Encapsulation          Ethernet, Ethernet
                                       VLAN, PPP, HDLC, etc.

      [...]

It should say:

      [...]

      Port Media                       GigE (Gigabit Ethernet),
                                       POS, ATM, etc.

|     Port Speed                       1 Gbps, 100 Mbps, etc.
                                         ^
      Interface Encapsulation          Ethernet, Ethernet
                                       VLAN, PPP, HDLC, etc.

      [...]

Notes:

Rationale:
Case matters for powers-of-ten indicating prefix characters in
SI unit designators; "G" = Giga (= 10^9); "g" is still undefined.

Section 4.1.2 says:

                                                              vv
|  It is RECOMMENDED that all of the ports (A1, DA1, DB1, and A2) on the
   DUT and test tool support a dynamic Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP)
   for routing such as IS-IS, OSPF, RIP, etc.  [...]

It should say:

                                                              vvvvvvvv
|  It is RECOMMENDED that all of the ports (A1, DA1, DB1, and B1, etc.)
   on the DUT and test tool support a dynamic Interior Gateway Protocol
   (IGP) for routing such as IS-IS, OSPF, RIP, etc.  [...]

Notes:

Rationale:
The text (on top of page 6 of the RFC) should refer to all four
columns in Figure 1 (on page 4); "A2" as the name of a second entity
in the first coulumn seems to be redundant; therefore, s/A2/B1/ ;
additionally, ", etc." suggested as an indication of the other rows.

Section 4.1.4.1 says:

(last paragraph:)

   MPLS label values used in any test case MUST be outside the reserved
|  label value (0-15) unless stated otherwise.

It should say:

   MPLS label values used in any test case MUST be outside the reserved
|  label value range (0-15) unless stated otherwise.
              ^^^^^^^

Notes:

Rationale:
"(0-15)" is not "the reserved label value".
To avoid confusion, more precise language should be used.
Inserting "range" seems to be the smallest sensical change.
