[JLReq] More than three ruby characters with jukugo-ruby?

Tony Graham-3
This is probably similar to my earlier confusion about mono-ruby with
more than three ruby characters [1].

The second paragraph of Section 3.3.7, "Positioning of Jukugo-ruby with
Respect to Base Characters", begins:

   If there is any kanji character in a given kanji compound word which
   needs more than three ruby characters, the jukugo-ruby layout cannot
   be used.

However, the alternative methods in Fig. 130 and Fig. 131 are both
described as jukugo-ruby and both show three or fewer ruby characters
per kanji.

1. Should "jukugo-ruby" in the first sentence be "mono-ruby"?

2. It's not clear to me whether the examples in Fig. 131 are correct for
   both nakatsuki-ruby and katatsuki-ruby or whether only katatsuki-ruby
   is being illustrated in this figure.

3. Who or what decides whether the maximum overhang over another base
   character is either a full character width or one and a half times
   the full-width of a ruby character?
