Section 2, pg. 5 says:

Rules for Lexical Equivalence:

         Lexical equivalence of URNs in the "urn:smpte:ul" subnamespace
         is defined by case-insensitive string match.

         Lexical equivalence of URNs in additional subnamespaces of
         "urn:smpte:" will be specified by SMPTE in the defining
         document; in the absence of such specification, lexical
         equivalence of URNs in the "urn:smpte:" namespace outside of
|        the "urn:smpte:ul" subnamespace is defined by exact string
|        match, according to [RFC2141].


It should say:

      Rules for Lexical Equivalence:

         Lexical equivalence of URNs in the "urn:smpte:ul" subnamespace
         is defined by case-insensitive string match.

         Lexical equivalence of URNs in additional subnamespaces of
         "urn:smpte:" will be specified by SMPTE in the defining
         document; in the absence of such specification, lexical
         equivalence of URNs in the "urn:smpte:" namespace outside of
         the "urn:smpte:ul" subnamespace is defined by exact string
|        match of the namespace-specific subpart of the URN (denoted
|        <other-NSS> above), according to [RFC2141].

Notes:

The RFC text contradicts RFC 2141.
The above correction restores conformance with RFC 2141.

[[ please remove after verification:
apparently this correction has been lost since LC,
during the application of other updates. ]]
