Throughout the document, when it says:


The report raised said:

> A future revision of the NAS protocol should mention the character set that MUST
> be used in commands, and also in answers.
> I advise current NAS implementations to use UTF-8 everywhere because UTF-8 is the
> encoding that will be encouraged in Netnews (NNTP commands already are in UTF-8
> per RFC 3977, and internationalized headers including newsgroup names are likely to
> be in UTF-8).

Whether or not this is good advice to future specifications and current implementations, this is not an erratum. Changes of this nature require to be documented in separate publications.
