Section 1 says:

Two useful Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)
functions in a transport network are "lock" and "loopback".  This
document discusses these functions in the context of MPLS networks.

It should say:

Two useful Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)
functions in a transport network are "lock" and "loopback".  This
document discusses these functions in the context of MPLS networks.

Further information about these abstract OAM functions in an MPLS
Transport Profile context can be found in RFC 6371 [6] where the
lock function is referred to as the "Lock Instruct function (LKI)"
and the loopback function is called "data-plane loopback."

Notes:

RFC6435 uses "LI" as acronym for "Lock Instruct" throughout the document.
RFC6371 uses "LKI" for "Lock Instruct" in sections 7.1, 7.1.1 and 7.1.2.
This may confuse the reader of both documents.
A similar confusion can occur for refering to the loopback function.
