(1)  [clarification]

Section 4 of RFC 4583, near the top of page 4, says:

   If an 'm' line in an offer contains a 'floorctrl' attribute, the
   answerer MUST include one in the corresponding 'm' line in the
   answer.  [...]

It should better say:

   If a SDP media description in an offer contains a 'floorctrl'
   attribute, the answerer accepting that media MUST include one in the
   corresponding media description of the answer.  [...]


(2)  [clarification]

Section 6 of RFC 4583, on mid-page 5, says:

   The 'floorid' attribute is used in BFCP 'm' lines.  [...]

It should better say:

   The 'floorid' attribute is used in the SDP media description for BFCP
   media.  [...]


Please comment.

It should say:

[not submitted]

Notes:

It's always the abuse of language, talking about an SDP attribute
as being used "in" an SDP 'm' line, where in fact the attribute is
just a media-level attribute, occurring as a standalone line in an
SDP media description, i.e. the SDP part introduced by the particular
'm' line.

This is, at best, a bit confusing.
