Section 1.1 says:

   This specification uses the Augmented Backus-Naur Form (ABNF)
   notation of [RFC5234] and includes, by reference, the "token",
   "word", "OWS", and "BWS" rules and the #rule extension as defined
   within Sections 3.2.1 and 3.2.4 of [RFC7230]; as well as the
   "delta-seconds" rule defined in Section 8.1.3 of [RFC7231]

It should say:

   This specification uses the Augmented Backus-Naur Form (ABNF)
   notation of [RFC5234] and includes rules, by reference, the "token"
   as defined in Sections 3.2.6 of [RFC7230], "OWS" and "BWS" as defined
   in Sections 3.2.3 of [RFC7230], and the #rule extension as defined in
   Sections 7 of [RFC7230]; as well as the "delta-seconds" rule defined
   in Section 8.1.3 of [RFC7231].

Notes:

Mapping of the keywords with the section numbers is incorrect. The correct mapping is as following:
"token" => Section 3.2.6 of RFC7320;
"word" => Not defined in RFC7320, but reported at Errata ID: 4439;
"OWS" and "BWS" => Section 3.2.3 of RFC7320;
"the #rule extension" => Section 7 of RFC7320;
