Can you give us the citation for the ITU specs you're citing here?  Years
ago when I looked at the literature, the standard was CCITT G.114 which
had standards for *one-way* delay and a three rating standard (acceptable,
may impact some applications, unnacceptable).  The one way delay values
were up to 150ms (acceptable), 150 to 400 ms (may impact), above 400ms

These were standards for voice and again, were one way.
