Section 4.1.2 says:

          | URI        | _tcp                  | [RFC6118]     |
          | URI        | _udp                  | [RFC6118]     |

It should say:

| URI        | _tcp                 | [RFC4340]     |
| URI        | _udp                 | [RFC4340]     |


Wrong reference. RFC6118 does not even mention "tcp" nor "udp".

Note that this also has an impact to the IANA registry: https://www.iana.org/assignments/dns-parameters/dns-parameters.xhtml#underscored-globally-scoped-dns-node-names

[ Warren Kumari (Ops AD): Please also see Errata 7066, and the thread https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/dnsop/WFMXL5dY8sniHwVtkPfcqvWk3nI/

This was added as "part of a list used to "reserve" the names of (transport) protocols, so that constructs like _25._quic.example.com could be constructed where the _name denotes the protocol and not the name of something." . IANA will update the reference. ]
