Section 5.5.3. says:

   Implementations MUST use a string-to-key specifier; the simple hash
   is for backward compatibility and is deprecated, though
   implementations MAY continue to use existing private keys in the old
   format.

It should say:

   Implementations MUST generate a string-to-key specifier; the simple
   hash is for backward compatibility and is deprecated, though
   implementations MAY continue to use existing private keys in the old
   format.

Notes:

MUST use and MAY continue to use the opposite is a contradiction.

Changed to editorial.
