Section 12.2 says:

12.2. Defined TLVs


   The following TLV Types are defined:

   Code                        Type
   ===================================================
     1                  IPv4 Source-Active
     2                  IPv4 Source-Active Request
     3                  IPv4 Source-Active Response
     4                  KeepAlive
     5                  Reserved (Previously: Notification)



It should say:

12.2. Defined TLVs


   The following TLV Types are defined:

   Code                        Type
   ===================================================
     1                  IPv4 Source-Active
     2                  (Previously IPv4 Source-Active Request)
     3                  (Previously IPv4 Source-Active Response)
     4                  KeepAlive
     5                  Reserved (Previously: Notification)

Notes:

Since SA caching is mandatory for all MSDP speakers, the Source-Active request and response messages are no longer necessary. They should be removed from the text to avoid confusion or include a reason as to why they are included and a description of their purpose.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
This needs to go through the standards process. Deprecating messages in the protocol is not an errata item.
