Section 3 says:

   Additionally, if a non-Querier switch spoofs any General Queries (as
   addressed in Section 2.1 above, for Spanning Tree topology changes),
   the switch should use the null IP source address (::) when sending
   said queries.  When such proxy queries are received, they must not be
   included in the Querier election process.

It should say:

   Additionally, if a non-Querier switch spoofs any General Queries (as
   addressed in Section 2.1 above, for Spanning Tree topology changes),
   the switch should use the unspecified IP source address (::) when
   sending said queries.  When such proxy queries are received, they
   must not be included in the Querier election process.

Notes:

The term, "null" IP address is inappropriate, according to the current
IPv6 Address Architecture document. RFC 4541 should use the proper
term, "unspecified" address (cf. Section 2.5.2 of RFC 4291).
