for RFC6550, "RPL: IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks".

You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6550&eid=4219

--------------------------------------
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported by: Michael Richardson <mcr+ietf@sandelman.ca>
Date Reported: 2015-01-05
Held by: Adrian Farrel (IESG)

Section: 1.0

Original Text
-------------
This document specifies the IPv6 Routing Protocol for LLNs (RPL).
Note that although RPL was specified according to the requirements
set forth in the aforementioned requirement documents, its use is in
no way limited to these applications.

Corrected Text
--------------
This document specifies the IPv6 Routing Protocol for LLNs (RPL).  
The acronym RPL is used extensively in other documents and in 
other acronyms,and it is pronounced "ripple". As such, it is 
appropriate to write "a RPL root" as if the acronym was pronounced, 
rather than "an RPL root" if the letters were spelt out "arr peee ell".

Note that although RPL was specified according to the requirements
set forth in the aforementioned requirement documents, its use is in
no way limited to these applications.

Notes
-----
Pronunciation of RPL
Newcomers to the IoT space do not know what "ripple" is.
This is recorded as errata so that it does not get lost on 6550bis.
