Section 5 says:

media-type     = type-name "/" subtype-name
quoted-mt      = <"> media-type <">

It should say:

media-type = type-name "/" subtype-name
quoted-mt  = <"> type-name "/" subtype-name 
    *( OWS ";" OWS parameter )<">

Notes:

The text as it stands excludes the possibility of including media type parameters. https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6838#section-4.3

--VERIFIER NOTES--
For better or worse, doing it this way was an explicit decision when the document was developed, so this doesn't qualify as errata. Issues are being collected for a possible 5988bis, and this can be added and discussed there:
