Section 3 says:

   The syntax of the List-Id header follows:

   list-id-header = "List-ID:" [phrase] "<" list-id ">" CRLF

It should say:

   The syntax of the List-Id header follows:

   list-id-header = "List-ID:" [phrase / CFWS] "<" list-id ">" CRLF

Notes:

This change is needed to conform with the second and fifth examples
given just after the syntax definition. Without it, the case "List-ID: <list.example.com>" (with a space after "List-ID:") would not be valid; only "List-ID:<list.example.com>" (without a space) would be, especially since it states that "the List-Id header does not allow free insertion of whitespace and comments around tokens."
