Rippetoe doesn't know what he's talking about if he thinks it's an error. It's way easier to show this in person than via words, but you can see this hip kick in nearly every IPF world class deadlifter if you go and view their Youtube channel, just pick any deadlift session. You do it while maintaining tension in your arms, lats, abs etc. It's usually accompanied by a big breath and a massive and sudden tensing of all the core muscles, feet static-stomping the ground and driving through. Basically you need a massive "oomph" effort to get the weight moving, and it's easier to do it from a small dynamic movement than a static position. Sometimes you see lifters do this while rolling the bar forward then back into the position and go.
