Section 7.4.3 says:

   digest-alg-id = "sha1" | "md5"

It should say:

   digest-alg-id = "sha-1" | "sha1" | "md5"
		; The "sha1" is a legacy spelling of the "sha-1" defined hash in the IANA Textual Names Registry
		; It should be maintained for backwards compatibility


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.
