Section 1. says:

   This increased initial window is optional: a TCP MAY start with a
   larger initial window.  However, we expect that most general-purpose
   TCP implementations would choose to use the larger initial congestion
   window given in equation (1) above.

It should say:

   This increased initial window is optional: a TCP MAY start with a
   smaller initial window.  However, we expect that most general-purpose
   TCP implementations would choose to use the larger initial congestion
   window given in equation (1) above.

Notes:

The MAY allows use of values smaller than this document allows, not larger.
