Section 2. says:

   2.  <obs-local-part> and <NO-WS-CTL> as defined in [RFC5322] MUST NOT
       be used.

It should say:

   2.  <obs-local-part> and <obs-NO-WS-CTL> as defined in [RFC5322] MUST
       NOT be used.

Notes:

NO-WS-CTL doesn't exist in RFC5322; it was changed to obs-NO-WS-CTL.

A future update to "mailto" should consider other whitespace changes as well.

Section 2.3 says:

3.  Whitespace and comments within <local-part> and <domain> MUST NOT
    be used.  They would not have any operational semantics.

It should say:

3.  Whitespace and comments within <local-part> and <domain> MUST NOT
    be used except quoted whitespace in <quoted-string>. 
    They would not have any operational semantics.

Notes:

<local-part> contain <quoted-string> and <quoted-string> contains <quoted-pair> according to definition in RFC 5322.

quoted-pair = ("\" (VCHAR / WSP)) / obs-qp

As definition above, <quoted-pair> contains whitespace <WSP> which according to RFC 6068, MUST NOT be used.

But example in RFC 6068 section 6.2 contain quoted whitespace. So I guess this is an exception.
