IBM-DM-025: Material on "node value" in wrong place, inconsistent terms

Data Model Section 7 (Atomic Values): The fifth paragraph contains a 
bullet list that talks about the "value of a node" and how it is 
"represented". This material belongs in the sections on element and 
attribute nodes, since these are the kinds of nodes that have values, and 
they represent them in different ways. But the terminology in these 
bullets is inconsistent with the rest of the document. Element and 
attribute nodes have various properties, but none of these properties are 
named "value". For example, an element node has "children", and an 
attribute has a "string value". But neither of these properties has the 
appropriate type for these rules. Perhaps these rules are trying to 
explain how the typed value of an element node is derived from the content 
of its child text nodes? Or how the typed value of an attribute node is 
derived from its "string value" property? In any case, the terminology of 
these rules needs to be fixed and the rules need to be moved to the 
appropriate section.
