RFC 5444, "Generalized Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Packet/Message Format", February 2009

Section 6.5.1 says:

When an Address Block TLV Type is registered, then a new registry for
type extensions of that type must be created.  A document that
defines a Message TLV Type MUST also specify the mechanism by which
its type extensions are allocated, from among those in [BCP26].

It should say:

When an Address Block TLV Type is registered, then a new registry for
type extensions of that type must be created.  A document that
defines an Address Block TLV Type MUST also specify the mechanism by
which its type extensions are allocated, from among those in [BCP26].

Notes:

'Message TLV Type' should read 'Address Block TLV Type'. This is likely a 'Copy-Paste' error from section 6.4.1, which stipulates a similar requirement for Message TLV Type Extension Registry creation.
