Section 7, 1st para says:

   ROHC-TCP uses three different packet types: the Initialization and
   Refresh (IR) packet type, the Context Replication (IR-CR) packet
   type, and the Compressed (CO) packet type.

It should say:

   ROHC-TCP uses four different packet types: the Initialization and
   Refresh (IR) packet type, the Initialization and Refresh - Dynamic
   Part (IR-DYN) packet type, the Context Replication (IR-CR) packet
   type, and the Compressed (CO) packet type.

Notes:

See GLOBAL errata report on IR <-> IR-DYN for rationale.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Authors and WG chairs are of the opinion that it is reasonably clear that IR is both a class of packets type. So from the context it should be understandable when the class is meant rather than the specific type. And clarification would also require major changes in several docs.
