Question Digest Draft Sec 2.1.1

In section 2.1.1 of draft-ietf-http-digest-aa-05.txt, the 
syntax for WWW-Authenticate is given as: 
 
WWW-Authenticate    = "WWW-Authenticate" ":" "Digest" 
                         digest-challenge 
 
digest-challenge    = 1#( realm | [ domain ] | nonce | 
                     [ digest-opaque ] |[ stale ] | [ algorithm ] ) 
 
realm               = "realm" "=" realm-value 
realm-value         = quoted-string 
domain              = "domain" "=" <"> 1#URI <"> 
nonce               = "nonce" "=" nonce-value 
nonce-value         = quoted-string 
opaque              = "opaque" "=" quoted-string 
stale               = "stale" "=" ( "true" | "false" ) 
algorithm           = "algorithm" "=" ( "MD5" | token ) 
 
 
My question is about "digest-opaque". Is the term "opaque" 
supposed to be "digest-opaque"? This seems to be the intention 
here, but the syntax does not reflect it. Am I missing something 
from somewhere else? The term "digest-opaque" does not  
appear anywhere else in the draft nor in the HTTP draft 07. 
 
thanks, 
 
Paul
