Section 2.3 says:

   The "ptype" in the ABNF above indicates the general type of property
   being described by the result being reported, upon which the reported
                                             ^^^^^
   result was based.  Coupled with the "property", which is more
   specific, they indicate from which particular part of the message the
   reported data were extracted.
                    ^^^^


It should say:

   The "ptype" in the ABNF above indicates the general type of property
   being described by the value being reported, upon which the reported
                                             ^^^^^
   result was based.  Coupled with the "property", which is more
   specific, they indicate from which particular part of the message the
   reported "pvalue"s were extracted.
                    ^^^^^^^^


Notes:

The original text can be understood in multiple ways, depending on the meaning attributed to the term "result". The corrected text I submit is one of the possible interpretations. Note that if the first appearance of the term is assumed to be the ABNF "result", then ptype becomes an attribute of method, thereby setting a limit of one ptype per resinfo, as coincidentally it actually is.
