Section 4.4.1 says:

   Example:

           C: a GETMETADATA "INBOX" /private/comment /shared/comment
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My comment"
                                  /shared/comment "Its sunny outside!")
           S: a OK GETMETADATA complete

      In the above example, two entries and their values are returned by
      the server.

   Example:

           C: a GETMETADATA "INBOX" /private/comment /shared/comment
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My comment")
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/shared/comment "Its sunny outside!")
           S: a OK GETMETADATA complete

It should say:

   Example:

           C: a GETMETADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment /shared/comment)
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My comment"
                                  /shared/comment "Its sunny outside!")
           S: a OK GETMETADATA complete

      In the above example, two entries and their values are returned by
      the server.

   Example:

           C: a GETMETADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment /shared/comment)
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/private/comment "My comment")
           S: * METADATA "INBOX" (/shared/comment "Its sunny outside!")
           S: a OK GETMETADATA complete

Notes:

ABNF in section 5 for "getmetadata" says that when requesting multiple metadata entries, they must be part of a parenthesized list, and not simply space-separated:

getmetadata = "GETMETADATA" [SP getmetadata-options] SP mailbox SP entries
entries = entry / "(" entry *(SP entry) ")"
entry = astring
