Section 8 says:

   Since protocols that do not implement PLPMTUD are still subject to
   problems due to ICMP black holes, it may be desirable to limit to
   these protocols to "safe" MTUs likely to work on any path (e.g., 1280
   bytes).  Allow any protocol implementing PLPMTUD to operate over the
   full range supported by the lower layer.

There is an extra "to" in the first sentence.  It should read "...it may
be desirable to limit these protocols to safe MTUs....".
