RFC 7489, "Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC)", March 2015

Section 6.6.3 step 1 says:

   1.  Mail Receivers MUST query the DNS for a DMARC TXT record at the
       DNS domain matching the one found in the RFC5322.From domain in
       the message.  A possibly empty set of records is returned.

It should say:

   1.  Mail Receivers MUST query the DNS for a DMARC TXT record at the
       DNS domain matching the _dmarc subdomain of the one found in
       the RFC5322.From domain in the message.  A possibly empty set
       of records is returned.

Notes:

Section 6.1. DMARC Policy Record states that DMARC records are 'stored as DNS TXT records in subdomains named "_dmarc"'. The policy discovery procedure needs to match. As I read it, it currently doesn't.
