Paleocene Dino Eggs?

I ran across an abstract today, its by Erben, Krumsiek & Thein, 1983. They talk 
about several pathological dinosaur egg localities in Southern France and the 
Spanish Pre-Pyrenes. These sites are from the Paleocene. Other 
egg localities in the Maastrichtian have normal eggs. They believe that this 
shows that not all the dinosaurs died out at the K/T boundary, but some 
survived, albeit for not long since the eggs show pathologies. 

I don?t know if this has been disputed or not.
