  Weird.  Looking at CVS, the dictionary was created before the RFC, so
my suspicion is that it matches the drafts, but not the final document

  I think that's possible, but not likely.  Only the numbers 2,3, and 4
are wrong.  The higher numbers were added later, and are correct.  So
only people using X25, ATM, or Frame-Relay will be affected... except
that the NASes likely use the correct numbers, so they won't be using
the wrong values for 2..4.
