Section 2.7 says:

   Nodes must not originate a packet to a multicast address whose scop
   field contains the reserved value 0; if such a packet is received, it
   must be silently dropped.  Nodes should not originate a packet to a
   multicast address whose scop field contains the reserved value F; ...

It should say:

   Nodes must not originate a packet to a multicast address whose scope
   field contains the reserved value 0; if such a packet is received, it
   must be silently dropped.  Nodes should not originate a packet to a
   multicast address whose scope field contains the reserved value F; ...

Notes:

Typo: scop --> scope (2 times)

-- RATIONALE FOR REJECTION --

This isn't a typo. The field is named "scop". See Section 2.7:

scop is a 4-bit multicast scope value used to limit the scope of
the multicast group.

Thanks to Bob Hinden for pointing this out.
