The newly added ones have an incorrect title.

That said: I realize that this way to cite an erratum is the one 
accepted by the RSE - other than that, it's brain dead, in that:

a) it provides minimal help to actually get to the erratum (requires 
following a link, opening a form, entering values), and

b) is semantically incorrect, as the erratum of an RFC is not the same 
thing as the RFC (but that's what the seriesInfo information is claiming).

Best regards, Julian
