I believe the idea is for the "plus" leagues to be at the top-level available as a way to have league playing opportunities for those one level "too high".
So, if the highest league available is a 5.0 league, it becomes a 5.0+ league and 2 5.5s are allowed to be rostered and play per the earlier described rules. But because there is a 5.0 league for 5.0 rated players to play in, there is no need to make the 4.5 league a 4.5+.
If the highest league available is 4.5, then it could be a 4.5+ league to give the 5.0s that don't have a league an opportunity to play.
