Section 14 says:

Because no variant label with any code point outside the repertoire
   could ever be allocated, the only logical choice for the non-
   reflexive mappings to out-of-repertoire code points is "blocked".

It should say:

Because no variant label with any code point outside the repertoire
   would ever be allocated in this example, the only logical choice for the non-
   reflexive mappings to out-of-repertoire code points is "blocked".

Notes:

As written the sentence makes an absolute claim that isn't in accordance with RFC7940. While not usual, there are circumstances where allowing allocatable variants for a code point that has a reflexive "out-of-repertoire-var" mapping may make sense. Therefore, the statement needs to be read as restricted to the specific scenario or example under discussion.
