Those references are great unfortunately these emails are not the spec and the spec needs those references to be clear on what it is explaining/defining.

The spec doesn't define basic mathematics terms because these already have
precise, well-accepted definitions. The spec doesn't define "greater than"
or "decimal notation" either, but I don't think it needs to.

Imho, the statement about -0 being equal to 0 should have been a non-normative
note. It is merely clarifying that we're using mathematical notation, not IEEE
doubles and therefore don't have a notion of positive or negative zeros.
