Section 4 says:

   A BGP speaker MUST only advertise to a BGP peer the IPv4 or VPN-IPv4
   NLRI with an IPv6 Next Hop if the BGP speaker has first ascertained
   via BGP Capability Advertisement that the BGP peer supports the
   Extended Next Hop Encoding capability for the relevant AFI/SAFI pair.

It should say:

   A BGP speaker MUST only advertise to a BGP peer the IPv4 or VPN-IPv4
   NLRI with an IPv6 Next Hop if the BGP speaker has first ascertained
   via BGP Capability Advertisement that the BGP peer supports the
   Extended Next Hop Encoding capability for the relevant AFI/SAFI pair.
   
   IPv4 or VPN-IPv4 NLRI with an IPv6 Next Hop SHOULD be treated as 
   malformed if it received from a BGP speaker that has not sent BGP 
   Capability Advertisement for the relevant AFI/SAFI pair.   

Notes:

The behavior was not explicitly mentioned.
