Section says:

   Note also that since this is a URI, the key server can actually be a
   copy of the key retrieved by ftp, http, finger, etc.

It should say:



Nonsense. The key server is not a copy of a key.
I do not get the point. What should be noted?

Modified to editorial.
Not actionable. No actual erratum. To answer the question, this text reminds the reader that a URI can refer to a static entity, as well as a query to a server. Yes, this is arguably superfluous, but it is there because of the WG’s rough consensus.
