Section 3.3 says:

   The usual mail address <local-part>@<mail-domain> is mapped into a
   domain name by converting <local-part> into a single label
   (regardles of dots it contains), converting <mail-domain> into a
   domain name using the usual text format for domain names (dots
   denote label breaks), and concatenating the two to form a single
   domain name. 

It should say:

   The usual mail address <local-part>@<mail-domain> is mapped into a
   domain name by converting <local-part> into a single label
   (regardless of dots it contains), converting <mail-domain> into a
   domain name using the usual text format for domain names (dots
   denote label breaks), and concatenating the two to form a single
   domain name.

Section 6.1. ends this way:

  Relative and absolute domain names may be freely intermixed in a
  master

which is incomplete.  It's unclear exactly how that sentence may have
been intended to end, but minimally I would suggeste it at least
terminated with 'file.'.

Section 6.2.8. in the diagram shows 'QTYPE=A', but should be of
type 'CNAME' based on the context of the example.

It should say:
