Section 10.3.1 says:

Service codes are assigned on a "first come, first served" basis
according to Section 19.8 of the DCCP specification [RFC4340].

It should say:

Service Codes are generally assigned on a "first come, first
served" basis, according to the rules specified in Section 19.8
of the DCCP specification [RFC4340]. This also defines
exceptions to this policy. [RFC5595] updated the policy
to require Service Codes assignments
in a Standards-Track specification to be assigned from the
Specifications-Required portion of the Service Code registry.


RFC 6335 should have noted in Section 10.3.1: Exceptions to the FCFS
policy are documented in RFC 4340. RFC 5595 updated the usage of the SC
values described in RFC 4340.
