The RFC 826 document clearly says, at the top, "This is not
an Internet Standard"

It does not define a standard. And given that it really isn't
surprising it has errors in it as we've clearly shown in these
threads. The authors of said document didn't scuritinize it
to the level it would need to be in order to truly be a standards
document people must follow to have a conformant implementation.
