Hi Peter!

Sounds like a pretty clear read to me. A few remarks/questions follow
inline.

What is 'timeOnTimeline'? Is this something that XSD people know?

How is the XSD group supposed to understand "derived XML Schema datatype"?
As a datatype different from the original xsd:dateTime?

I am not clear whether I correctly understand this sentence. Does this refer
to the situation that a non-timezoned dateTime is compared to a dateTime
with a timezone? Because the comparison between two dateTimes without a
timezone should always lead to the same result for both XSD and OWL, or do I
overlook something here?

Cheers,
Michael
