from pending
This Erratum is complaining that this RFC defines a bit, but then marks it as outside the scope of this document.

While this is bad practice, it does not break any rules and is not grounds for an Erratum. It might be justifiable e use of the bit if anyone is interested.

Furthermore, the Erratum does not make any specific point or propose and resolution.
