Section 5 says:

   url-resp-text = 1*(%x01-09 /
                      %x0B-0C /
                      %x0E-5B /
                      %x5D-FE) ; Any TEXT-CHAR except "]"

It should say:

   url-resp-text = 1*(%x01-09 /
                      %x0B-0C /
                      %x0E-5C /
                      %x5E-FE) ; Any TEXT-CHAR except "]"


The skipped character %x5C is "\" not "]". I think the intent is to omit "]" since url-resp-text is used exclusively inside a [BADURL url-resp-text] response code, and they want to avoid aliasing the closing "]".
