Section 5.12. says:

   A User ID packet consists of UTF-8 text that is intended to represent
   the name and email address of the key holder.

It should say:

   A User ID packet body consists of UTF-8 text that is intended to
   represent the name and email address of the key holder.
or
   A User ID packet contains UTF-8 text that is intended to represent
   the name and email address of the key holder.

Notes:

Yes, it is pedantic. But the packet consists of header and body.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Similar to errata 2220 etc. It is indeed pedantic as submitter notes.
