Section 10.4 says:

   "The IETF takes no position regarding the validity or scope of
   any intellectual property or other rights that might be claimed
   to  pertain to the implementation or use of the technology
   described in this document or the extent to which any license
   under such rights might or might not be available; neither does
   it represent that it has made any effort to identify any such
   rights.  Information on the IETF's procedures with respect to
   rights in standards-track and standards-related documentation
   can be found in BCP-11..."

   Some RFCs standardize the results of community deliberations about
   statements of principle or conclusions about what is the best way
   to perform some operations or IETF process function.  These RFCs
   form the 'BCP' (Best Current Practice) subseries of the RFC
   series.  When a specification has been adopted as a BCP, it is
   given the additional label "BCPxxx", but it keeps its RFC number
   and its place in the RFC series. (see section 5)

Section 10.4 says:

         The limited permissions granted above are perpetual and will
         not be revoked by the Internet Society or its successors or

It should say:

         The limited permissions granted above are perpetual and will
         not be revoked by the Internet Society or its successors or
         assignees.

Notes:

Assigns vs. assignees in the boilerplate text. xml2rfc generates the latter (which appears to be correct), idnits currently allows both variants.

The same change needs to be applied in Section 10.3.1 bullet item 7.
