Section 1(j) says:

"Legend Instructions": the standardized text that is maintained by the
IETF Trust and is included in IETF Documents and the instructions and
requirements for including that standardized text in IETF Documents.
The text and instructions are posted from time to time at

It should say:

Beats me.  See below.  It is probably better to fix this problem by
making the link point to what the RFC says it points to than to
create a final erratum for the RFC, but even the latter would require 
some effort for the erratum to describe a stable reference.


When this link is used, it redirects to http://trustee.ietf.org/license-info, but that link redirects to the Trust Legal Provisions main page (https://trustee.ietf.org/trust-legal-provisions.html ) which not only does not contain the promised text and instructions, but doesn't even contain the word "Legend". One might figure out that one is supposed to go to the actual TLP page (currently https://trustee.ietf.org/documents/IETF-TLP-5_001.html), but, while that page mentions "legend(s)" several times, one of those places is not in Section 6, which is described as "Text To Be Included..." and not "Legends" as this RFC implies.
The web page at http://trustee.ietf.org/license-info still redirects to https://trustee.ietf.org/documents/trust-legal-provisions/, but that page was recently updated to point the reader to the IETF Trust FAQ for RFC5378 instructions.
