You know very well the majority of double sockets have something like MAX LOAD 20A embossed on them
Very likely as that is test standard total load as specified in BS1363.
Winston, you may find that standard in your local library. Maybe it is on the same shelf as the copy of BS7671 that you refer to!;)

I used chalk to make the embossing legible to the camera

Maybe. I’ve not been to the library since COVID.
