Section 7 says:

"Some DHCP servers work around this problem for the common case where
the boot Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM) presents no client
identifier, and the operating system DHCP client presents a client
identifier constructed from the Message Authentication Code (MAC)
address of the network interface..."

It should say:

"Some DHCP servers work around this problem for the common case where
the boot Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM) presents no client
identifier, and the operating system DHCP client presents a client
identifier constructed from the Media Access Control (MAC)
address of the network interface..."

Notes:

The sentence (included above) from Section 7 of RFC 4361 provides an incorrect
expansion of the MAC acronym (Message Authentication Code).
