Personally I'm not so convinced. Quite stretching the planet-brown dwarf boundary

Agreed. That's definitely pushing it.
I'm curious what the rationale is. The mas is given as 31 8 MJ, so the lower edge with in the error margin given is 23 MJ. Still...

Constraint in the EPE readme is 20 Jupiter masses to 2 sigma, so this object does appear to meet that criterion.

Mass ratio of the system perhaps suggests the brown dwarf interpretation is a better one in this case though.
