Section 2.1 says:

byte-range-set  = 1#( byte-range-spec / suffix-byte-range-spec )

It should say:

byte-range-set = *( "," OWS ) ( byte-range-spec /
    suffix-byte-range-spec ) *( OWS "," [ OWS ( byte-range-spec /
    suffix-byte-range-spec ) ] )


The document contains two ABNF definitions for "byte-range-set". They appear in Section 2.1 "Byte Ranges" and Appendix D "Collected ABNF".

The two definitions are different. It seems like the definition in Appendix D is the correct one.
Alexey: As per comment from Julian: "Both are correct. See first sentence of Appendix D."
