Hi,

Indeed. Thanks for the confirmation.

My understanding of IETF procedures is, that an Errata submission would
be possible, valid way to unambiguate that language - which is advisable
to prevent further implementation confusion.

Shall I go ahead and draft up an erratum or do you want to take up
on that yourself?

Best regards,
Daniel
