Dear all,

As Brian mentioned, RFC 7013 section 5.2 applies here:

    2.  it corrects an ambiguity in the Information Element's definition,
        which itself leads to non-interoperability severe enough to
        prevent the Information Element's usage as originally defined
        (e.g., a prior change to ipv6ExtensionHeaders); or


Paul, as errata 4984 owner, can you please drop a note to IANA with the 
new definition.
Let's not forgot to bump the revision number by one, as mentioned in 
RFC7013 section 5.2.

Once done, even if it's not necessary, I'll accept the errata 4984.
There is no harm and it would be easier for a RFC 5102 reader, assuming 
someone would read this obsolete RFC (instead of the RFC 7102 that 
points to IANA)

Regards, Benoit
