No, I didn't even try with your values, actually.
Out of spec just means that the numbers do not fall between Min and
Max on the datasheet:

72.6 <= DCLK <= 80.24 vs. 71
1506 <= htotal <= 1716 vs. 1500

The driver I am testing this with does not yet support reading the
EDID over eDP, so I am using the fixed values for now.
