Section 7 says:
This section presents the RSVP message related formats as modified by this document. Where they differ, formats for unidirectional LSPs are presented separately from bidirectional LSPs.
It should say:
This section presents the RSVP-TE message related formats as modified by this document. Where they differ, formats for unidirectional LSPs are presented separately from bidirectional LSPs.
Does not confine the scope of the specification as it
would be appropriate.
'Classic' RSVP (RFC 2205) is neither covered nor affected by the
subsequently specified (extended) message formats.
Although it is true that there is some common distinction between "classic" RSVP and RSVP-TE, the IP protocol number is the same, and the message numbers (and registry) are the same. In essence, there is just one protocol with two uses.
