Section 8.3.2.3 says:

|  These 2 bits are the least significant bits of the MSN and are thus
   concatenated with the 14 bits already present in the FEEDBACK-2
   format.

It should say:

|  These 2 bits are the most significant bits of the MSN and are thus
   concatenated with the 14 bits already present in the FEEDBACK-2
   format.

Notes:

It does not make much sense to "provide 2 additional bits"
for a numerical value, and taking the *least* significant bits
for this purpose. This way, the interpretation of the other
encoded MSN bits would prematurely be changed by the presence
of the MSN option.
Therefore, I strongly suspect that the text is in error and
should be corrected as above.
