In the verbage of 188.8.131.52 it asks for expressions compliant to 4.3.2
Again, I think, this was an unintentional logical oversight in the text.
184.108.40.206 defines the representations with reduced acuracy. There is no
reason, I think, to disallow these. Note that they explicitly allow for
reduced representations for durations so I don't see why they would.....
