K&B page 466 "method-local inner class"

On page 466, it is stated that "The only modifiers you can apply to a method-local inner class are abstract and final."
Consider the following example:
class Outer2
private String x = "Outer2";

void doStuff()
final int a = 10;
strictfp class Inner2
void seeOuter()
}//end Inner2

Inner2 i = new Inner2();
}//end doStuff
It seems strictfp can also be applied to a method-local inner class.
Am I missing something?

JLS 14.3
strictfp is not mentioned as causing a compile error modifier.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
