Section 2.2 says:

In cases where there is more than one field of only zeros, there is a
choice of how many fields can be shortened.

2001:db8:0:0:0::1
2001:db8:0:0::1
2001:db8:0::1
2001:db8::1

It should say:

In cases where there is more than one field of only zeros,there is a
choice of how many fields can be shortened, but must be shortened to 
its maximum capability.

2001:db8:0:0:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8:0:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8::1 is CORRECT
