Section MplsLabel says:

              * The Generalized-MPLS (GMPLS) label contains a
                value greater than 2^24-1 and used in GMPLS
                as defined in [RFC3471]."

It should say:

              * The Generalized-MPLS (GMPLS) label may contain
                a value greater than 2^24-1 and is used in
                GMPLS as defined in [RFC3471]."

Notes:

The orriginal text implied that GMPLS labels could only be greater than
(2^24 - 1). In fact all label alues are supported.

Section 3 says:

          STATUS        current
          DESCRIPTION
             "A unique identifier for an MPLS Tunnel.  This may
              represent an IPv4 address of the ingress or egress
              LSR for the tunnel.  This value is derived from the

          SYNTAX  Unsigned32(0..4294967295)

It should say:

       MplsExtendedTunnelId ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
          STATUS        current
          DESCRIPTION
             "A unique identifier for an MPLS Tunnel.  This may
              represent an IPv4 address of the ingress or egress
              LSR for the tunnel for an IPv4 network.  For IPv6
              this represents an IPv4 address of the ingress or
              egress LSR for the tunnel for an IPv6 network.
              This value is derived from the

          SYNTAX  OCTET STRING(SIZE(16))

Notes:

The Syntax is wrong. This change will require the new TC to be used through out the MPLS MIB modules. A MIB http://potaroo.net/ietf/idref/draft-manral-mpls-rfc3811bis/ was written for the purpose.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Although only a few lines of text are proposed for modification, this change would make a technically un-interoperable change to existing implementations. Therefore it should be handled by discussion in the working group and a new RFC if there is consensus. I am rejecting the erratum.
