 "A recipient parsing a delta-seconds value ought to use an arithmetic type
  of at least 32 bits of signed integer range."
                         ^^^^^^
You meant unsigned, right ? Because the value 2147483648 requires at least
32 bits unsigned or 33 bits signed, but 32 bits signed never satisfies this
requirement.

Regards,
Willy
