Section 2.1 says:
The syntax of a legal Internet host name was specified in RFC-952 [DNS:4].
It should say:
The syntax of a legal Internet host name was specified in RFC-952 [DNS:4] and reiterated in RFC-1034 Section 3.5 [DNS:1].
This essentially trivial editorial change makes it slightly easier for
anyone (or any tool) that tracks changes and updates to host and domain
naming rules to identify the applicability of this section.
