Section 4.2.1 says:

 |         C: a GETMETADATA "INBOX" (MAXSIZE 1024)
                                    (/shared/comment /private/comment)
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My own comment")
           S: a OK [METADATA LONGENTRIES 2199] GETMETADATA complete

It should say:

 |         C: a GETMETADATA (MAXSIZE 1024) "INBOX"
                                    (/shared/comment /private/comment)
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My own comment")
           S: a OK [METADATA LONGENTRIES 2199] GETMETADATA complete

Notes:

GETMETADATA examples with options are wrong. ABNF says the options should be before mailbox name, not after. (Having them after mailbox name would also make the parsing more difficult since it could be confused with entries-list).
