Section 2.2 says:

In cases where there is more than one field of only zeros, there is a
choice of how many fields can be shortened.

2001:db8:0:0:0::1
2001:db8:0:0::1
2001:db8:0::1
2001:db8::1

It should say:

In cases where there is more than one field of only zeros,there is a
choice of how many fields can be shortened, but must be shortened to 
its maximum capability.

2001:db8:0:0:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8:0:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8:0::1 is NOT acceptable
2001:db8::1 is CORRECT

Applying section 4.2.1

Section 4.2.1 says:

The line

> The use of the symbol "::" MUST be used to its maximum capability.

… contradicts the next section, which states that single-0 fields are not reduced.

i.e., this:

> 2001:db8:0:1:1:1:1:1

… is longer than:

> 2001:db8::1:1:1:1:1

Thus, the standard does not, in all cases, require that "::" be used to its maximum capability.

It should say:

The first line of 4.2.1 should be amended to be consistent with section 4.2.2

> The use of the symbol "::" MUST be used to its maximum capability to reduce consecutive 16-bit 0 fields.

Section 4.2.2. says:

Handling One 16-Bit 0 Field

The symbol "::" MUST NOT be used to shorten just one 16-bit 0 field.
   For example, the representation 2001:db8:0:1:1:1:1:1 is correct, but
   2001:db8::1:1:1:1:1 is not correct.

It should say:

But Section 2.2.  Zero Compression
says:

'A special syntax is available to compress the zeros.  The use of
      "::" indicates one or more groups of 16 bits of zeros.'

   It is possible to select whether or not to omit just one 16-bit 0
   field.

      2001:db8:aaaa:bbbb:cccc:dddd::1

      2001:db8:aaaa:bbbb:cccc:dddd:0:1

Notes:

In 2.2 :: for only one 16-bit 0 filed :: is used
4.2.2 says MUST NOT -RFC 2119 says
2. MUST NOT This phrase, or the phrase "SHALL NOT", mean that the
definition is an absolute prohibition of the specification.

Section 2.2 says:

'A special syntax is available to compress the zeros. The use of
"::" indicates one or more groups of 16 bits of zeros.'

It should say:

'A special syntax is available to compress the zeros. The use of
"::" indicates two or more groups of 16 bits of zeros.'


Notes:

"indicates one" should be written as "indicates two"

for example:
'A special syntax is available to compress the zeros. The use of
"::" indicates two or more groups of 16 bits of zeros.'

2001:db8:aaaa:bbbb:cccc::1

2001:db8:aaaa:bbbb:cccc:0:0:1
