Section 25 says:

The DUT SHOULD be able to respond to address resolution requests sent
by the DUT wherever the protocol requires such a process.

It should say:

The DUT and tester SHOULD both be able to respond to address
resolution requests wherever the protocol requires such a
process.

Notes:

DUT responding to its own address resolution requests does not make sense.

[Original corrected text was "The DUT SHOULD be able to respond to address resolution requests sent by the tester wherever the protocol requires such a process." - after discussions with the BMWG I edited the corrected text as above - the tester also needs to respond, as otherwise the DUT will age out its resolution -- WK ]
