Section 6.,2nd para says:

   o  The Session-ID is constructed and exported as the concatenation of
|     the following three elements, in this order: (a) the EAP Code Type
|     for EAP-IKEv2 (to be defined by IANA), (b) the contents of the
      Nonce Data field of the Nonce Payload Ni from message 3, (c) the
      contents of the Nonce Data field of the Nonce Payload Nr from
      message 4.

It should say:

   o  The Session-ID is constructed and exported as the concatenation of
|     the following three elements, in this order: (a) the EAP Method 
|     Type for EAP-IKEv2 (49, as assigned by IANA), (b) the contents of
      the Nonce Data field of the Nonce Payload Ni from message 3, (c)
      the contents of the Nonce Data field of the Nonce Payload Nr from
      message 4.

Notes:

Rationale:
a) "EAP Code Type" is confusing; the correct term is
"EAP Methode Type".
b) The code point indeed had been allocated by IANA on publication
of the RFC; the text should be explicit, for the ease of its readers.
