Section 4.2 says:

chain:  An array of base64-encoded Precertificates.  The first
         element is the end-entity certificate; the second chains to the
         first and so on to the last, which is either the root
         certificate or a certificate that chains to a known root
         certificate.

It should say:

chain:  An array of base64-encoded Precertificate and certificates. 
         The first element is the end-entity precertificate; the second
         chains to the first and so on to the last, which is either the
         root certificate or a certificate that chains to a known root
         certificate. Only the first element in the array may be
         a precertificate.

Notes:

The current description of Add PreCertChain implies the array may consist of multiple Precertificates. In practice it only makes sense for the first element to be a Precertificate, the following elements should be proper certificates.
