Subject: Double leap seconds

Section D.1 says "A value of 60 or more is allowed only in the case of
leap
seconds". Is the "or more" just intended to cover a fractional second or
is
it intended to allow values >= 61?  The specs for Java and ISO C allow a
value of 61, but as far as I can see the official spec for UTC

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/volatile/ITU-R-TF.460-4.pdf

only allows a single leap second.
