Section 3.6 says:

   The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) acts as a registry for
   transfer-coding value tokens. Initially, the registry contains the
   following tokens: "chunked" (section 3.6.1), "identity" (section
   3.6.2), "gzip" (section 3.5), "compress" (section 3.5), and
   "deflate" (section 3.5).


There is no section 3.6.2; there is no such thing as Transfer-Coding:
identity in the RFC 2616 specification (note that there would not be
quotes around "identity" in the actual header!).
