Section B.5.6 says:

On page 25, defines:

     Reliability ::= SEQUENCE {
       reliabilityMechanism   OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
|      reliabilityMechContent OCTET STRING
     }

   The reliability mechanism is defined by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER and the
   information needed to operate that mechanism is defined as
|  reliabilityMechContent and is an OCTET STRING (as before).

It should say:

Add the following clarification immediately after last paragraph:

The OCTET STRING in each of these is an opaque blob whose
processing is subsequently defined in the vendor or domain-specific types.

Notes:

whereas the subsequent definitions in B.5.6.{1,2,3} define the syntax
of three possible instantiations of Reliability, with syntax NULL,
INTEGER, and IA5String, respectively, for the reliabilityMechContent
element.
Again, that doesn't match!
