Section,p.35 says:

   The sending node defines the Heartbeat Data field contents.  It may
   include a Heartbeat Sequence Number and/or time stamp, or other
   implementation specific details.

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message does not process this field as it
   is only of significance to the sender.  The receiver echoes the
   content of the Heartbeat Data in a BEAT ACK message.

It should say:

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message echoes the content of the
   Heartbeat Data field contained therein without further processing
   in the Heartbeat Data field of the Heartbeat Ack message.


Apparently, the quoted text has been copied from without
performing the appropriate rewording to accommodate the context
of (BEAT ACK message).
