Section 1.1.1 says:

         A host is generally said to be multihomed if it has more than

Section 2.3.2 says:

Section 2.3.2, and subsections 2.3.2.1 and 2.3.2.2, do not belong where 
they are in this RFC.



It should say:

Move the text in this section either under section 2.4, or in section 
3.


Notes:

ARP is a protocol used by Internet devices for the purpose of mapping Internet Addresses to MAC addresses. Link layer devices and associated protocols will only support and/or use ARP to the extent that they are also Internet devices (for example if participating in management protocols developed to operate between IP addressed devices).

Hence referring to ARP as a Link Layer Protocol will only continue to confuse the industry.

Because the number of references to ARP refering to Link.2, perhaps it would be easiest to move the text to section 2.4, adding a new subsection header 2.4.1 for the text currently in section 2.4, and renumbering current section 2.3.2 to 2.4.2 (as well as renumbering subsections 2.3.2.1 and 2.3.2.2 to 2.4.2.1 and 2.4.2.2, respectively).

Refering to ARP as a part of the Link/Internet Layer Interface is more accurate.
