Section 4.1 says:

   -  In DSR, the route returned in each Route Reply that is received by
      the initiator of a Route Discovery (or that is learned from the
      header of overhead packets, as described in Section 8.1.4)
      represents a complete path (a sequence of links) leading to the
      destination node.  [...]

It should say:

   -  In DSR, the route returned in each Route Reply that is received by
      the initiator of a Route Discovery (or that is learned from the
      header of overheard packets, as described in Section 8.1.4)
      represents a complete path (a sequence of links) leading to the
      destination node.  [...]

Notes:

Text was inteded to not talk about "overhead" packets, but (promiscuously) "overheard" packets!

Section 6.5 says:

      Opt Data Len

         8-bit unsigned integer.  Length of the option, in octets,
         excluding the Option Type and Opt Data Len fields.

It should say:

      Opt Data Len

         8-bit unsigned integer.  Length of the option, in octets,
         excluding the Option Type and Opt Data Len fields. In the
         basic form of this Option, this field has the value 2.
         (See Section 7.4.1 for an extended version of this Option.)

Notes:

Provide specific value of the length field.

Section 8.2.1 says:

   The behavior of a node processing a packet containing DSR Options
   header with both a DSR Source Route option and a Route Request option
   is unspecified.

Section 8.6.2 says:

   -  Set the Protocol field of the IP header to the protocol number
      assigned for DSR (48).

It should say:

   -  Set the Protocol field of the previous header to the protocol
      number assigned for DSR (48).

Notes:

The procedure specified in Section 8.6.2 is a bit misleading in its
last step; if followed literally, it will mess up the packet in the
case that there is any Hop-by-Hop Options header present after the
IP header.

Section 6.4 says:

         When the Opt Data Len is greater than that required for
         the fixed portion of the Route Error plus the necessary
         Type-Specific Information as indicated by the Option Type
         value in the option, the remaining octets are interpreted as
         extensions.

It should say:

         When the Opt Data Len is greater than that required for
         the fixed portion of the Route Error plus the necessary
         Type-Specific Information as indicated by the Error Type
         value in the option, the remaining octets are interpreted as
         extensions.

Notes:

As can be seen from the context, the "Type-Specific Information" is
dependent on the "Error Type" field value, not the "Option Type"
field value.
