Section 3.6.1 says:

      key-k-tag        = %x76 [FWS] "=" [FWS] key-k-tag-type

It should say:

      key-k-tag        = %x6b [FWS] "=" [FWS] key-k-tag-type


The key-k-tag should (presumably) start with the letter "k" to match the other key-LETTER-tag definitions and to match the "k=" heading. However, the ABNF specifies %76 which is the letter "v", not the letter "k". The correct value is %x6b.
