Section 3.1 says:

   Some characters are only useful in line-based text, and are otherwise
   invisible and ignored.

   00AD; SOFT HYPHEN
   1806; MONGOLIAN TODO SOFT HYPHEN
   200B; ZERO WIDTH SPACE
   2060; WORD JOINER
   FEFF; ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE

It should say:

   Some characters are only useful in line-based text, and are otherwise
   invisible and ignored.

   00AD; SOFT HYPHEN
   200B; ZERO WIDTH SPACE
   2060; WORD JOINER
   FEFF; ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE

Notes:

This issue has been reported to the unicode consortium (http://www.unicode.org/L2/L2015/15277-pubrev.html), according to which: U+1806 is not a control character; RFC 3454 is mistaken in mapping it to nothing, since the character always has a distinct visual appearance; For more information about the character, see page 528 of Core Specification, Version 8.0.
