Section 4 says:

 ;For name=3D"UID"
   param        =3D ""
        ; No parameters allowed

   value        =3D text-value

It should say:

 ;For name="UID"
   param        = "TYPE" "=" (iana-token / x-name)
        ; Only the TYPE parameter is allowed.

   value        = text-value

Notes:

Section 3.6.7 (p. 23) "UID Type Definition" says:

The type can include the type parameter "TYPE" to specify the format
of the identifier. The TYPE parameter value should be an IANA
registered identifier format. The value can also be a non-standard
format.
