Section 7 says:

   Additionally, confederations (as well as route reflectors), by
   excluding different reachability information from consideration at
   different locations in a confederation, have been shown [RFC3345] to
   cause permanent oscillation between candidate routes when using the
   tie-breaking rules required by BGP [BGP-4].

It should say:

   Additionally, confederations (as well as route reflectors), by
   excluding different reachability information from consideration at
   different locations in a confederation, have been shown [RFC3345] to
   cause persistent oscillation between candidate routes when using the
   tie-breaking rules required by BGP [BGP-4].

Notes:

s/permanent/persistent

RFC 3345 nowhere refers to this oscillation as "permanent". It consistently refers to it as "persistent" only.

"Permanent" is a much stronger word than "persistent", and I believe is not applicable here.
