Section 22.17 says:

      option-code          OPTION_VENDOR_OPTS (17)

      option-len           4 + length of option-data field

      enterprise-number    The vendor's registered Enterprise Number as
                           registered with IANA [6].

      option-data          An opaque object of option-len octets,
                           interpreted by vendor-specific code on the
                           clients and servers

It should say:

      option-code          OPTION_VENDOR_OPTS (17)

      option-len           4 + length of option-data field

      enterprise-number    The vendor's registered Enterprise Number as
                           registered with IANA [6].

      option-data          An opaque object,
                           interpreted by vendor-specific code on the
                           clients and servers

Notes:

option-len is defined to be the size of the option-data + 4. Thus the size of option-data cannot option-len, but is actually option-len - 4.
