Section A.1 says:

      init_seq(s, seq);
      s->max_seq = seq - 1;
      s->probation = MIN_SEQUENTIAL;

It should say:

      init_seq(s, seq);
      s->max_seq = seq == 0 ? seq : seq - 1;
      s->probation = MIN_SEQUENTIAL;


If the first RTP packet has a sequence number of 0, the logic will cause cycles to increase by 1, which will affect "expected number of received packets" calculations.
Submitter requested rejection.
