    215    A recipient parsing a delta-seconds value ought to use an arithmetic type
    216    of at least 32 bits of signed integer range. A sender &MUST-NOT; generate a
    217    delta-seconds value greater than 2147483647 (32bit INT_MAX, or
    218    2<x:sup>31</x:sup> - 1).
    219 </t>
    220 <t>
    221215   If a cache receives a delta-seconds value larger than the largest
    222216   positive integer it can represent, or if any of its subsequent calculations
    223    overflows, the cache &MUST; consider the value to be the largest positive
    224    integer it can represent.
     217   overflows, the cache &MUST; consider the value to be 2147483648
     218   (2<x:sup>31</x:sup>). A recipient parsing a delta-seconds value &MUST; use
     219   an arithmetic type of at least 31 bits of range, and a sender &MUST-NOT;
     220   generate delta-seconds with a value greater than 2147483648.
     221</t>
     222<t>
     223   Note that this value (2147483648) might cause implementation issues on some
     224   platforms (in particular, those that represent MAX_INT as
     225   2<x:sup>31</x:sup>-1), and therefore ought to be handled carefullly.
