Section 4.8.2. says:

   By default, the server will include all sub-resources within a
   retrieved resource that have the same resource type as the requested
   resource.  The exception is the datastore resource.  If this resource
   type is retrieved, then by default the datastore and all child data
   resources are returned.

It should say:

   By default, the server SHOULD include all sub-resources within a
   retrieved resource that have the same resource type as the requested
   resource.  The exception is the datastore resource.  If this resource
   type is retrieved, then by default the datastore and all child data
   resources are returned.

Notes:

Substitute "will" by "SHOULD".

Use one of the keywords of RFC2119 to clarify the expected server behavior.
