Section Introduction says:

This document specifies the clearance sponsor attribute.  It is
   included in public key certificates [RFC5280] and attribute
   certificates [RFC5755].  This attribute is only meaningful as a
   companion of the clearance attribute [RFC5755] [RFC5912].  The
   clearance sponsor is the entity (e.g., agency, department, or
   organization) that granted the clearance to the subject named in the
   certificate.  For example, the clearance sponsor for a subject
   asserting the Amoco clearance values [RFC3114] could be
   "Engineering".

It should say:

   certificate.  For example, the clearance sponsor for a subject
   asserting the Amoco clearance values [RFC3114] could be
  "Engineering".

RFC 5913 should be added to the references:

   [RFC5913]  Turner, S. and S. Chokhani, "Clearance Attribute and
                        Authority Clearance Constraints Certificate Extension",
                        RFC 5913, June 2010.

Notes:

The first paragraph in the section references RFC 5912. As far as I can see, it should really reference RFC 5913 (Clearance Attribute and Authority Clearance Constraints - Certificate Extension).
