Section 4.2.4.4 says:

   7.  Compute the VRS-IP and VRS-AS set values as indicated below:

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension is present in
          certificate x and x=1, set the VRS-IP to the resources found
          in this extension.

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension is present in
          certificate x and x=1, set the VRS-IP to the resources found
          in this extension.

       *  If the AS Identifier Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the AS Identifier Delegation extension (...)

It should say:

   7.  Compute the VRS-IP and VRS-AS set values as indicated below:

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension is present in
          certificate x and x=1, set the VRS-IP to the resources found
          in this extension.

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the IP Address Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the AS Identifier Delegation extension is present in
          certificate x and x=1, set the VRS-AS to the resources found
          in this extension.

       *  If the AS Identifier Delegation extension (...)

       *  If the AS Identifier Delegation extension (...)

Notes:

There seems to be a copy-paste error.

There are two bullet points explaining the initialization of VRS-IP, and none explaining the initialization of VRS-AS.

All the evidence suggests that the two extensions (IP Address Delegation and AS Identifier Delegation) are meant to be handled similarly, so I believe that the last three bullet points are supposed to perfectly mirror the first three.
