Section 6.3 says:

   o  If the received protocol is HTTP/1.0, the "keep-alive" connection
      option is present, the recipient is not a proxy, and the recipient
      wishes to honor the HTTP/1.0 "keep-alive" mechanism, the
      connection will persist after the current response; otherwise,

It should say:

  o  If the received protocol is HTTP/1.0, the "keep-alive" connection
     option is present in a message that is not a request to a proxy,
     and the recipient wishes to honor the HTTP/1.0 "keep-alive"
     mechanism, the connection will persist after the current response;
     otherwise,

Notes:

The correction makes it clearer that the reference is meant to be client-to-proxy and not proxy-to-server.
