Throughout the document, when it says:

(See Section 3.2 for additional details related to the use of public in
 response to a request containing Authorization, and Section 3 for 
 details of how public affects responses that would normally not be

(see Section 4.2.2), or

It should say:

(See Section 3.2 for additional details related to the use of public in

Notes:

Section 4.2.2 is titled "Calculating Heuristic Freshness" but is referenced in the original text when talking about status codes. This is confusing despite having a reference to Section 6.1 of RFC7231 buried within the text.

There are other references to 4.2.2 as well, but those actually talk about heuristic freshness.
