Default Mass (A) prgramme

I'm looking to begin the PM Mass (A) programme. Could somebody please explain the following to me?

2-position Snatch 60% x 4 sets
2-position Clean 60% x 4 sets

Is a two-position clean a deadlift then a hang squat clean (and the same idea for the snatch)?
Secondly, does the notation mean work up to 4 singles at 60% of your 1RM?
And thirdly, I may be missing the point of the programme, but 60% just doesn't seem intense enough at such low volume. Since the idea is to gain functional weight, could it be that the O-lifting involved is simply to work on technique whilst the squatting, deadlifting etc is what is actually supposed to make you stronger and stimulate growth?
