Section 6.6.4 says:

[text below should be added to the end of the section]

It should say:

   FGSR and FGSS values always satisfy FGSR <= GSR and FGSS <= GSS,
   where GSR and GSS are the Greatest Sequence Numbers Received by and
   Sent from this endpoint.  These constraints MUST be enforced even
   when GSR and GSS wrap, as they might in a long connection.
   Implementations SHOULD thus check FGSR and FGSS after every packet
   received or sent, as follows.  (Wmax is the maximum allowed value for
   the Sequence Window feature; see Section 7.5.2.)

         If FGSR > GSR, then FGSR := GSR - Wmax.
         If FGSS > GSS, then FGSS := GSS - Wmax.

   Alternate implementations that correctly handle sequence number
   wrapping are also acceptable.

Notes:

One technical omission has been found concerning the FGSR and FGSS
variables used to detect reordering of feature negotiation options. We
suggest adding the above paragraph to the end of Section 6.6.4, on Page
42.

Section 6.6.8 says:

      The Ack
      Ratio feature takes two-byte, non-zero integer values, so a
      "Change L(Ack Ratio, 0)" option is never valid.

It should say:

      The Sequence Window feature takes six-byte, non-zero integer
      values, with a minimum valid value of 32, so a "Change
      L(Sequence Window, 0)" option is never valid.

In Section 6.6.4, Page 41, it says:

              (Change and/or Confirm).  This value is initialized to
              ISR - 1.

It should say:

              (Change and/or Confirm).  This value is initialized to
              ISR - 1, where ISR is the Initial Sequence Number Received
              from the other endpoint.  (ISR and other sequence number
              variables are defined in Section 7.1.)

In Section 6.6.4, Page 41, it says:

              reordering.  FGSS is initialized to ISS.

It should say:

              reordering.  FGSS is initialized to ISS, the Initial
              Sequence Number Sent by this endpoint.


In Section 7.5.2, Page 49, it says:

    getting out sync after bursts of loss,

It should say:

    getting out of sync after bursts of loss,


In Section 8.1.2, Page 60, it says:

            intepreting the four-character result as a 32-bit big-endian

It should say:

            interpreting the four-character result as a 32-bit big-endian


In Appendix A, Page 116, it says:

    right to left.  The implementation maintains five variables, aside

It should say:

    right to left.  The implementation maintains four variables, aside

And it says:

       acknowledged in the buffer.  This corresponds to the "head"

It should say:

It should say:
