Section 4, pg.9 says:

   Within the CMS, algorithms are identified by object identifiers
|  (OIDs).  With one exception, all of the OIDs used in this document
   were assigned in other IETF documents, in ISO/IEC standards
   documents, by the National Institute of Standards and Technology
   (NIST), and in Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) documents.
   The two exceptions are the ASN.1 module's identifier (see Appendix
|  B.3) and id-rsa-kem that are both assigned in this document.  The
|  module object identifiers are defined in an arc delegated by the
   former company RSA Data Security Inc. to the S/MIME Working Group.
   When the S/MIME Working Group closes, this arc and its registration
   procedures will be transferred to IANA.

It should say:

   Within the CMS, algorithms are identified by object identifiers
|  (OIDs).  With two exceptions, all of the OIDs used in this document
   were assigned in other IETF documents, in ISO/IEC standards
   documents, by the National Institute of Standards and Technology
   (NIST), and in Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) documents.
   The two exceptions are the ASN.1 module's identifier (see Appendix
|  B.3) and id-rsa-kem that are both assigned in this document.  Both
|  object identifiers are defined in an arc delegated by the
   former company RSA Data Security Inc. to the S/MIME Working Group.
   When the S/MIME Working Group closes, this arc and its registration
   procedures will be transferred to IANA.

Notes:

Rationale:
Alignment with Appendix B: _two_ exceptions, both from same arc.
