Section 4 says:

   ;For name="EMAIL"


   email-type   = "INTERNET" / "X400" / iana-token / "X-" word
        ; Values are case insensitive

It should say:

   ;For name="EMAIL"


   email-type   = "INTERNET" / "X400" / iana-token / x-name
        ; Values are case insensitive


The email-type should contain a 'x-name' type instead of '"X-" word' for consistancy with tel-type, key-type and adr-type.
Although "word" appears several times, it is not defined at all!
