Answer:

These messages are caused by using DIF support for SORTWORK datasets, which is not permitted.
 

Instructions:
The SORTWORKs can NOT be adjusted by ASRs or by the DIF variables, &RB and &MP.
The following are example rules that can be added to your ASRs 
so that sortwork data sets will not be processed by DIF/RTF.
 
Rule to add to FILTLIST
---------------------------------------
FILTLIST &EXCLSORT INCLUDE (
            SORTWK*,STATWK*,DATAWK*,DA%%WK*,ST%%WK*,SW%%WK*)
 
Rule to add to ALLOC and EXTEND before the DIF statements, SET &RB=nn and SET &MP=nn...
------------------------------------------------------
  IF &DD      EQ &EXCLSORT THEN EXIT CODE(0)
 
Please note that the SORTOUTs are just like any other data set and can be adjusted by ASRs or with DIF/RTF.
Only the sortworks can not be adjusted by DIF/RTF.
