Section 4.2 says:

Key Encipherment Keys, in the lower part of page 10, in the two (doubly indented) paragraphs explaining the components of 'agreeMAC', uses improper names for these components -- cf. the ASN.1 syntax for PKMACValue at the top of page 9. The RFC says:

        vvvvvv
        macAlg contains the algorithm identifying the method used to
        compute the MAC value.

        macValue contains the computed MAC value.
        ^^^^^^^^

It should say (I propose to make use of hierarchical subfield
notation):

        agreeMAC.algID  contains the algorithm identifying the method
        used to compute the MAC value.

        agreeMAC.value  contains the computed MAC value.



It should say:

[see above]     

Notes:


--VERIFIER NOTES--
The implication of doing the second level of indentation indicates that
these fields are in the type referenced by the agreeMac field. Note that the same thing occurs just above for subsequentMessage. The type definition occurred in the previous section 4.1.
