The situation w.r.t. use of multiplace displaytexts with different 
languages and/or scripts is unclear:

In http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-powder-primer-20081114/#create

"In addition, a textual and/or graphic summary that can be displayed to 
end users may be included in a descriptor set using the displaytext and 
displayicon elements as shown in the completed example below."

       <displaytext>Everything on example.com is red and 
square</displaytext>
       <displayicon src="http://authority.example.org/icon.png" />


I understand from http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-powder-dr-20081114/#appA 
that displaytext is optional. And that "As shown in lines 13 and 14, a 
textual and/or graphic summary that can be displayed to end users may be 
included using displaytext and displayicon respectively. The GRDDL 
transform maps these to  wdrs:text and wdrs:logo respectively."

Does "Optional" mean 0 or 1, or does it mean 0, 1 or more? Can I have 
two different displaytext values with the same xml:lang? with different 
xml:lang? How are these preserved/treated under the GRDDL transform?

Thanks for any clarification,

cheers,

Dan
