Section 4.9.5.1 says:

  Each wildcard group set may contain one or more
        (*,*,RP) source list entries in either the Joined or Pruned
        lists.

        A (*,*,RP) source list entry may only exist in a wildcard group
        set.  When added to a Joined source list, this type of source
        entry expresses the router's interest in receiving traffic for
        all groups mapping to the specified RP.  

It should say:

  Each wildcard group set MAY contain one or more
        (*,*,RP) source list entries in either the Joined or Pruned
        lists.

        A (*,*,RP) source list entry MAY only exist in a wildcard group
        set.  When added to a Joined source list, this type of source
        entry expresses the router's interest in receiving traffic for
        all groups mapping to the specified RP.
