Section 2.2 says:

   After review and consideration of significant errata, the IESG will
   perform an IETF-wide Last Call of at least four weeks on the
   requested reclassification.  If there is consensus for
   reclassification, the RFC will be reclassified without publication of
   a new RFC.

It should say:

   After review and consideration of significant errata, the IESG will
   perform an IETF-wide Last Call of at least four weeks on the
   requested reclassification.  If there is consensus for
   reclassification, the RFC will be reclassified with or without
   publication of a new RFC.

Notes:

Some people seem to have interpreted this text in a more restrictive manner than intended by the authors. Advancement from Proposed Standard to Internet Standard does not require the publication of a new RFC. Reclassification of an existing RFC is allowed, but reclassification in conjunction with publication of a new RFC is also allowed.
