RFC 7254, "A Uniform Resource Name Namespace for the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) and the International Mobile station Equipment Identity (IMEI)", May 2014

Area Assignment: rai

Section 3 says:

         gsma-urn-char         = ALPHA / DIGIT
                                 / "-" / "." / "_" / "%" / ":"

It should say:

         gsma-urn-char         = ALPHA / DIGIT
                                 / "-" / "." / "_" / pct-encoded / ":"

Notes:

As written, the RFC allows the URN to contain a "%" without consideration of the following characters, which is contrary to the syntax of URNs. Where the grammar shows "%", it really wants "pct-encoded". Though you'll probably have to update the references to provide the definition of pct-encoded -- that seems to have been introduced in RFC 3986.
