6.1.  Support for GOST signatures

   DNSSEC aware implementations SHOULD be able to support RRSIG and
   DNSKEY resource records created with the GOST algorithms as
   defined in this document.
...
8.  IANA Considerations
...
                                     Zone    Trans.

   {TBA1} GOST R 34.10-2001 GOST     Y       *     (this memo)  OPTIONAL
...
   Value   Algorithm        Status
   {TBA2}  GOST R 34.11-94  OPTIONAL

Section 6.1 and 8 are in conflict.
