Section 9 says:

   IANA has assigned two values in the "TLS SignatureAlgorithm" registry
   for ed25519 (7) and ed448 (8) with this document as reference.  This
   keeps compatibility with TLS 1.3.

It should say:

   IANA has assigned two values in the "TLS SignatureAlgorithm" registry
   for ed25519 (7) and ed448 (8) with DTLS-OK set to "Y" and this document
   as reference.  This keeps compatibility with TLS 1.3.

Notes:

IANA had consulted with Yoav, one of the authors (and a TLS registry expert), who explicitly told them to use DTLS-OK of "Y", but this clarification was not reflected in the final RFC. This also matches the text in the subsequent paragraph.
