Section 7.3 says:

   The currently supported values for MIC algorithm <micalg> values are:

        Algorithm   Value Used
        ---------    -------
         SHA-1        sha1
         MD5          md5

It should say:

   The currently supported values for MIC algorithm <micalg> values are:

        Algorithm   Value Used
        ---------    -------

         SHA-1      sha-1 or sha1
         MD5        md5
         SHA-224    sha-224
         SHA-256    sha-256
         SHA-384    sha-384
         SHA-512    sha-512

Notes:

The proper spelling is "sha-1" per http://www.iana.org/assignments/hash-function-text-names/hash-function-text. However, "sha1" should still be accepted to support backwards compatibility. The other hashes are newer ones since the RFC was published.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
A separate erratum was issued with the SHA1/SHA-1 fix. The additional algorithms cannot be added in an erratum.
