Section .6 says:

      domain-name     = sub-domain 1*("." sub-domain)
                        ; from [RFC5321] Domain,
                        ; excluding address-literal

It should say:

      domain-name     = sub-domain 1*("." sub-domain)
                        ; from [RFC5321] Domain


In RFC5321 "domain" does not include address-literal. This mistake was copied from RFC4871
(which referred to the [RFC2821] Domain, which does include address-literal).
This report is just to flag it so we don't put it in the next revision.
