Section 5 says:

   <?xml version="1.0"?>

   <!DOCTYPE rfc [

     <!-- allow later RFC 2629 reference using "&rfc2629;" -->
     <!-- the data will be fetched from xml2rfc.ietf.org -->
     <!ENTITY rfc2629 PUBLIC
     "http://xml2rfc.ietf.org/public/rfc/bibxml/reference.RFC.2629.xml">
   ]>

It should say:

   <?xml version="1.0"?>

   <!DOCTYPE rfc [

     <!-- allow later RFC 2629 reference using "&rfc2629;" -->
     <!-- the data will be fetched from xml2rfc.ietf.org -->
     <!ENTITY rfc2629 SYSTEM
     "http://xml2rfc.ietf.org/public/rfc/bibxml/reference.RFC.2629.xml">
   ]>

Notes:

A "PUBLIC" entity would need an additional "PubidLiteral" (which could be an empty string); but it's simpler to use a "SYSTEM" entity instead.

See <https://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-20081126/#sec-external-ent>.
