Section IANA Conside says:

N/A 

It should say:

8.x DNSSEC

    ipv4only.arpa MUST be insecurely delegated.  This allows ISP's to
    modify / generate AAAA responses for ipv4only.arpa AAAA queries that
    will pass through unmodified caching servers as required by 8.1 (4).

Notes:

The protocol as described does not work when there is a validating caching server in the resolution path.

IANA should have been instructed to insecurely delegate ipv4only.arpa. This allows ISP's to modify the
AAAA response without running foul of DNSSEC validation.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
So this errata was correct on the issue, but errata was not the appropriate way of resolving this issue. RFC 8880 that updates RFC 7050 specifies a resolution to this errata.
