Section 5.4 says:

The IP address space is administered by the NIC (Network Information
Center).  All internets that are connected to the single world-wide
Internet must use network numbers assigned by the NIC.  If you are
setting up your own internet and you are not intending to connect it
to the Internet, you should still obtain your network numbers from
the NIC.

It should say:

The IP address space is administered by the IANA (Internet Assigned 
Numbers Authority).  All internets that are connected to the single 
world-wide Internet must use network numbers assigned by the IANA.  
If you are setting up your own internet and you are not intending to 
connect it to the Internet (private network), you can choose any 
IP address for your network but it is recommended to use private 
ranges which are:
class A   10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (16,777,216 IP addresses),
class B   172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (1,048,576 IP addresses) and
class C   192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (65,536 IP addresses).

Notes:


--VERIFIER NOTES--
The current text in RFC 1180 accurately reflects the administration of IP address at the time.
