Section 2.8. says:

   o  C_MAX = P_MAX + tag length = 247,877,906,896 octets.

It should say:

   o  C_MAX = P_MAX + tag length = 274,877,906,896 octets.


When reviewing errata 4858, Adam Langely and Yoav Nir identified that this text should also be changed.

(This errata was created by duplicating 4858 in the system by Lars Eggert.)
