Section 5.4 says:

   When sending a no-cache request, a client ought to include both the
   pragma and cache-control directives, unless Cache-Control: no-cache
   is purposefully omitted to target other Cache-Control response
                                                         ^^^^^^^^
   directives at HTTP/1.1 caches.

It should say:

   When sending a no-cache request, a client ought to include both the
   pragma and cache-control directives, unless Cache-Control: no-cache
   is purposefully omitted to target other Cache-Control request
                                                         ^^^^^^^
   directives at HTTP/1.1 caches.

Notes:

"other Cache-Control response directives" was probably intended to be "other Cache-Control request directives," because a request cannot have response directives.
