(6) missing comma, causing possible mis-interpretation

The last sentence of Section 3, at the bottom of page 9, says:

                                        [...].  The HMAC SHALL be
   computed over the entire message, excluding the MAC field using
   auth_key; see also section 4.2.

It should say:

It should say:

                                        [...].  The HMAC SHALL be
|  computed over the entire message, excluding the MAC field, using
   auth_key; see also section 4.2.

or perhaps even better and clearer:

                                        [...].  The HMAC SHALL be
|  computed (using auth_key) over the entire message excluding the MAC
|  field; see also section 4.2.
