So that means that hold-up time actually could last a lot longer in real life conditions. It even could mean that the power OK signal drops before the output voltages go out of spec.
The magic word is "could".
"Could" doesn't specify certainty. "Could" means that either it will or it will not !!
And as i said multiple times in the past, i'm not a person that likes risks, and the 50%-50% chance of the "could" word, is a serious risk percentage in my opinion.
So, if it 1) "could mean that the power OK signal drops before the output voltages go out of spec.", it also 2) could mean that the Power_OK could drop much much later after the voltages get out of spec!!!
So the conclusion is that we need even more thorough testing and NOT to abandon them completely and pretend that the issue doesn't exist at all !!!
