Section 4.1 says:

   length
      Identical to the length field in a TLS 1.2 record.  As in TLS 1.2,
      the length should not exceed 2^14.

It should say:

   length
      Identical to the length field in a TLS 1.2 record.  As in TLS 1.2,
      the length MUST NOT exceed 2^14.

Notes:

The originial comment on length in RFC 5246, 6.2.1 is:
length
The length (in bytes) of the following TLSPlaintext.fragment. The
length MUST NOT exceed 2^14.
so it has to be "MUST NOT" - instead of "should not" as currently stated.
