Section 3 says:
[RFC1340] also establishes the Registered range of 1024-59151, though it notes that it is not controlled by the IANA (at that point).
It should say:
[RFC1340] first indicated the Registered range of 1024-65535. This noted that the range was only recorded (rather than controlled) by IANA. The list provided by [RFC1700] in 1994 remained the standard, until replaced by an online version in 2002 [RFC3232]. At some time after 1994, but before 2000, the Registered range was changed to 1024-49151 and the Dynamic/Private range of 49152-65535 was established, although this change was not recorded in the RFC series until 2011 [RFC6335].
There is an editorial issue as the original text indicated the wrong range with respect to RFC1340. However, the range should not just be updated in the text as there is more history that needs clarification.
