Actually, there is a limit of TWO lithium-ion batteries "up to [a total of]
25 mg", which (thank god) would appear to allow me to carry on (only) two of
my 970s. For my purposes this should be OK.

My concern is that this is called out in the table as a "special case"...

... and there's no explanation of why that row is uniquely described as a
"special case."

Poking around the TSA site I can't disambiguate what they mean by this
phrase. E.g. does one need a letter stamped by George W?

Or does it just mean, they know this would cause chaos and hence have
included this option which extends by default to everyone?

Taxpaying minds want to know...!
