Section 3 says:

    Message Length

      The Message Length field is three octets and indicates the length
      of the Diameter message including the header fields and the padded
      AVPs.  Thus, the Message Length field is always a multiple of 4.

It should say:

    Message Length

      The Message Length field is three octets and indicates the number
      of octets of the Diameter message, including the header fields and
      the padded AVPs.  Thus, the Message Length field is always a 
      multiple of 4 octets.

Notes:

the actual text does not indicate the unit of length unit, which may lead to confusion and IOT issues, especially if someone considers bits instead of bytes.
