Section 2.3.2 says:
1. The S-bit of the TAC is set to 1 or 0 to advertise or withdraw it.
It should say:
1. The E-bit of the TAC is set to 1 or 0 to advertise or withdraw it.
My understanding of this RFC suggests that in order to Advertize or Withdraw TAC , the bit E in TAC is used. In Point # 1 of section 2.3.2, it is mentioned that bit S is used. Looks this is Editorial mistake.
I believe this errata is inaccurate. The S-bit is part of the "Capability Parameter" TLV as defined in RFC 5561 Section 3 and the TAE is the Targeted Application Capability that is defined in RFC8223. Section 2.3.2 is correct in stating that the S-bit of the TAC is set to 1.
