Section 3.1,2nd para says:

   For example, a general comment being added to a mailbox may have an
|  entry name of "/comment" and a value of "Really useful mailbox".
                  ^^^^^^^^

It should say:

   For example, a general comment being added to a mailbox may have an
|  entry name of "/shared/comment" and a value of "Really useful
   mailbox".

Notes:

Rationale:
The example given in the Original Text violates the rules for
the formation of entry names specifcied later in the RFC
(cf. section 3.2 ff.), and is therefore considered confusing.
