What would double have shown directly over 1?

It would have showed the same as the description of the delayed double. Clearly, if the descriptions were accurate, the balancing double must show less.

When I say "accurate" I mean conforming with sound bridge logic, not how GIB interprets the call.

So pass followed by double shows a BETTER hand according to the description. What nonsense. And yet my long-time contention that the descriptions are essentially broken and need to be completely revamped doesn't get much support.
