Section 8.1 says:

 There are six kinds of RFCs:

   o  Proposed standards
   o  Draft standards
   o  Internet standards (sometimes called "full standards")
   o  Informational documents
   o  Experimental protocols
   o  Historic documents

It should say:

  There are seven kinds of RFCs:

   o  Proposed standards
   o  Draft standards
   o  Internet standards (sometimes called "full standards")
   o  Best Current Practice documents
   o  Informational documents
   o  Experimental protocols
   o  Historic documents

Notes:

This enumeration omits the "Best Current Practice" documents.
The approval process for BCPs is quite different than Informational
RFCs. Because BCPs are so important, including their role in publishing
the the IETF Standards Process itself, they shoudl be included in this
list.
