Section 2.1 says:

The syntax of a legal Internet host name was specified in RFC-952 [DNS:4].

It should say:

The syntax of a legal Internet host name was specified in RFC-952
[DNS:4] and reiterated in RFC-1034 Section 3.5 [DNS:1].

anyone (or any tool) that tracks changes and updates to host and domain
naming rules to identify the applicability of this section.

Section 4.1.2.5 says:

                 This is required because of the long delay after a TCP
                 connection is closed until its socket pair can be
                 reused, to allow multiple transfers during a single FTP
                 session.  Sending a port command can avoided if a
                 transfer mode other than stream is used, by leaving the
                 data transfer connection open between transfers.
