Section 5.2.1.1 says:

  A newgroup control message requesting creation of the moderated
  newsgroup example.admin.info.

      From: "example.* Administrator" <admin@noc.example>
      Newsgroups: example.admin.info
      Date: 27 Feb 2002 12:50:22 +0200
      Subject: cmsg newgroup example.admin.info moderated
      Approved: admin@noc.example
      Control: newgroup example.admin.info moderated
      Message-ID: <ng-example.admin.info-20020227@noc.example>
      MIME-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="nxtprt"
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

It should say:

  A newgroup control message requesting creation of the moderated
  newsgroup example.admin.info.

|     Path: not-for-mail
      From: "example.* Administrator" <admin@noc.example>
      Newsgroups: example.admin.info
      Date: 27 Feb 2002 12:50:22 +0200
      Subject: cmsg newgroup example.admin.info moderated
      Approved: admin@noc.example
      Control: newgroup example.admin.info moderated
      Message-ID: <ng-example.admin.info-20020227@noc.example>
      MIME-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="nxtprt"
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Notes:

As the mandatory Path: header field is missing, this control message is only a proto-article.

A control message is defined in Section 5 as an article which contains a Control: header field. Therefore, a Path: header field should be added to the headers of this sample newgroup control article.
