Section 5.1 says:

   A request that requires further messages to be exchanged will be
   aborted by a subsequent request.  A client MUST NOT send a subsequent
   request if it has not received a response from the server for a
   previous request.  A SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_FAILURE message MUST NOT be
   sent for an aborted method.

It should say:

   A request that requires further messages to be exchanged will be
   aborted by a subsequent request.  In this case a client MUST NOT 
   send a subsequent request if it has not received a response from 
   the server for a previous request.  A SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_FAILURE 
   message MUST NOT be sent for an aborted method.

Notes:

The ambiguous wording, which can be confusing. See previous paragraph
