Section 6.2.1 says:

4             security/authorization messages
10            security/authorization messages

It should say:

4             security/authorization messages (note 1)
10            security/authorization messages (note 1)

Note 1 - Various operating systems have been found to utilize
         facilities 4 and 10 for security/authorization
         messages which seem to be similar.

Notes:

Not including the note (adapted from the one in RFC3164) causes errata like the one with ID 4967 to be erroneously reported.
