Section 4.2, page 5 says:

   NEW:

   o  For two URIs to be equal, the user, password, host, and port
|     components must match.  If the host component contains a textual
|     representation of IP addresses, then the representation of those
      IP addresses may vary.  If so, the host components are considered
      to match if the different textual representations yield the same
      binary IP address.

It should say:

   NEW:

|     components must match.  If both host components contain the textual

Notes:

Rationale: Essential clarification of potentially misleading grammar
and semantics including singular/plural mismatches. Because of the
perceived significance, this erratum is designated as Technical.
