Section 4 says:

   If a given component type within a prefix in unknown, the prefix in
   question cannot be used for traffic filtering purposes by the
   receiver.  Since a flow specification has the semantics of a logical
   AND of all components, if a component is FALSE, by definition it
   cannot be applied.  However, for the purposes of BGP route
   propagation, this prefix should still be transmitted since BGP route
   distribution is independent on NLRI semantics.

It should say:

   If a given component type within a prefix is unknown, the prefix in
   question cannot be used for traffic filtering purposes by the
   receiver.  Since a flow specification has the semantics of a logical

   propagation, this prefix should still be transmitted since BGP route
   distribution is independent of NLRI semantics.

Notes:

Two minor typos:
- If a given component type within a prefix _in_ unknown
- independent _on_
