Section 13 says:

   7.   Due its internal implementation, ANS finds a response that is
        tailored for the whole /16 of the client that performed the
        query.

   8.   ANS adds an ECS option in the response, containing:
[...]
        *  SCOPE PREFIX-LENGTH set to 0x30, indicating a /48 network.

It should say:

Notes:

The prose description in step 7 does not match the ECS option described in step 8. Either both should say "/16" or both should say "/48". Probably /48 was meant, since a /16 would be a huge amount of IPv6 address space.

--VERIFIER NOTES--
Internet Software Consortium occurs only in the acknowledgements and while incorrect now it is generally the perogative of the authors to include in this section what they see fit. were a future version to be updated it's acknowledgements would probably include the then current contributors not the previous ones.
