RFC 4055, "Additional Algorithms and Identifiers for RSA Cryptography for use in the Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile", June 2005

Section 3 says:

   CAs that issue certificates with the id-RSASSA-PSS algorithm
   identifier SHOULD require the presence of parameters in the
   publicKeyAlgorithms field if the cA boolean flag is set in the basic
   constraints certificate extension.  CAs MAY require that the
   parameters be present in the publicKeyAlgorithms field for end-entity
   certificates.

It should say:

   CAs that issue certificates with the id-RSASSA-PSS algorithm 
   identifier SHOULD require the presence of parameters in the 
   subjectPublicKeyInfo algorithm field if the cA boolean flag is set 
   in the basic constraints certificate extension.  CAs MAY require 
   that the parameters be present in the subjectPublicKeyInfo algorithm 
   field for end-entity certificates. 

Notes:

The correct name of the field is "subjectPublicKeyInfo algorithm field" as opposed to "publicKeyAlgorithms field". Note that this change is also included in the draft-ietf-pkix-rfc4055-update ID.
