Section 6 says:

   In-band credit management allows credits to be incrementally granted
   with each PPP Session Stage packet.  These in-band incremental credit
|  grants are not explicitly unacknowledged.  However, they are
   reflected in the in-band credit flow from the peer node.

It should say:

   In-band credit management allows credits to be incrementally granted
   with each PPP Session Stage packet.  These in-band incremental credit
|  grants are not explicitly acknowledged.  However, they are reflected
   in the in-band credit flow from the peer node.

Notes:

I strongly suspect that in the second sentence,
"not explicitly unacknowledged"
is an erroneous double negation and should be
"not explicitly acknowledged" .

Section 6 says:

   Packets received when granted credits that have been exhausted
   are discarded.

It should say:

   When granted credits have been exhausted, any further packets
   received are discarded.

Notes:

That sentence does not parse. Perhaps, the word 'that' should be
deleted.

Yes - I've supplied a sentence that makes it clearer.
