Section 3.2.1 says:

It should say:

Add the following is as the last paragraph of Section 3.2.1:

  [RFC2616] indicates "HTTP does not use the
  Content-Transfer-Encoding (CTE) field of RFC 2045”; nevertheless, this
  document was published specifying the use of the
  Content-Transfer-Encoding header with a value of ‘base64' in Sections
  4.1.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.4.2, 4.5.2, as well as in the examples in
  Appendices A.1-A.4.   As HTTP is binary-clean transport, there is no
  need to indicate this for HTTP-based protocols like EST.  EST server
  implementations SHOULD omit the Content-Transfer-Encoding header if
  they know a priori that EST clients do not rely this field.  EST
  Clients SHOULD expect that the Content-Transfer-Encoding header will
  be absent unless they have an a priori agreement with the EST server.
  The mechanism to establish this client dependency is out-of-scope.


EST, which is an HTTP-based protocol, erroneous used CTE. This errata addresses this error.

Note that the text was reviewed by a RAI AD as well as multiple EST implementors.
