Section A.4.2 says:

   opaque ASN.1Cert<2^24-1>;

It should say:

   opaque ASN.1Cert<1..2^24-1>;


The appendix definition of ASN.1Cert leaves out the floor of the variable-length vector, which must be specified according to the vector syntax specification in section 4.3. Fortunately, the original definition of ASN.1Cert in section 7.4.2 does specify the floor as 1, so the definition in A.4.2 should be updated to match.
