Section 9.2 says:

   If, due to the limits on the maximum size of an UPDATE message (see
   Section 4), a single route doesn't fit into the message, the BGP
   speaker MUST not advertise the route to its peers and MAY choose to
   log an error locally.

It should say:

   If, due to the limits on the maximum size of an UPDATE message (see
   Section 4), a single route doesn't fit into the message, the BGP
   speaker MUST NOT advertise the route to its peers and MAY choose to
   log an error locally.

Notes:

The Normative text should be "MUST NOT", and not "MUST not" -- both words should be capitalized.
