Section 11.4.1 says:

11.4.1. Result-Code AVP Values


   As defined in Section 7.1, the Result-Code AVP (AVP Code 268) defines
   the values 1001, 2001-2002, 3001-3010, 4001-4002 and 5001-5017.

   All remaining values are available for assignment via IETF Consensus
   [IANA].

It should say:

11.4.1. Result-Code AVP Values


   As defined in Section 7.1, the Result-Code AVP (AVP Code 268) defines
   the values 1001, 2001-2002, 3001-3010, 4001-4003 and 5001-5017.

   All remaining values are available for assignment via IETF Consensus
   [IANA].

Notes:

7.1.4. Transient Failures

......
DIAMETER_AUTHENTICATION_REJECTED 4001
......
DIAMETER_OUT_OF_SPACE 4002
......
ELECTION_LOST 4003
The peer has determined that it has lost the election process and
has therefore disconnected the transport connection.

For Transient Failures we have error code 4001-4003 defined but the IANA consideration part says only 4001-4002, which can mean the value 4003 is free, but 4003 is assigned to ELECTION_LOST hence error.
