Section 7.1 says:

Subsequently, near the top of page 24, the same section says:

                        vvvvvvvvv
   The %xx mechanism of [RFC1738] is used to encode '?' (%3f) and '%'
   (%25) if they are not being used for their reserved purpose.  Names
   MUST NOT start with a numeric character.

It should better say:

                        vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
   The %xx mechanism of Section 2.1 of STD 66 [RFC3986] is used to
   encode '?' (%3f) and '%' (%25) if they are not being used for their
   reserved purpose.  Names MUST NOT start with a numeric character.

It should say:

[see above]     

Notes:

Rationale: RFC 1738 has been obsoleted; the %-escaping method is now covered by the above mentioned section of that Internet Standard.
