Section A says:

   o  Adds support for two new algorithms, SHA2-256 as mandatory and
      SHA2-512/256 as a backup, and defines the proper algorithm
      negotiation.  The document keeps the MD5 algorithm support but
      only for backward compatibility.

It should say:

   o  Adds support for two new algorithms, SHA-256 as mandatory and
      SHA-512/256 as a backup, and defines the proper algorithm
      negotiation.  The document keeps the MD5 algorithm support but
      only for backward compatibility.

Notes:

The SHA-2 family of algorithms are conventionally referred to using just "SHA-" and the bit strength, not "SHA2-" and the bit strength.
