           Summary: [XQuery11] Decimal format declarations do not define
                    how properties are interpreted.
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Member-only Editors Drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XQuery 1.1
        AssignedTo: jonathan.robie@redhat.com
        ReportedBy: oliver@cbcl.co.uk

The entirety of Section 4.10 is as follows:

[18]       DecimalFormatDecl       ::=       "declare" (("decimal-format"
EQName) | ("default" "decimal-format")) (DFPropertyName "=" StringLiteral)*
[19]       DFPropertyName       ::=       "decimal-separator" |
"grouping-separator" | "infinity" | "minus-sign" | "NaN" | "percent" |
"per-mille" | "zero-digit" | "digit" | "pattern-separator"
[Definition: A decimal-format declaration defines statically known decimal
formats, which define the properties used to format numbers using the
fn:format-number() function], as described in [XQuery and XPath Functions and
Operators 1.1].

It is a static error for a query prolog to contain two decimal formats with the
same name, or to contain two default decimal formats. [err:XQST0111]. It is a
static error for a decimal-format to specify a value that is not legal for a
given property, as described in statically known decimal formats
[err:XQST0097]. It is a static error if, for any named or unnamed decimal
format, the properties representing characters used in a picture string do not
each have distinct values. These properties are decimal-separator-sign,
grouping-separator, percent-sign, per-mille-sign, zero-digit, digit-sign, and
pattern-separator-sign [err:XQST0098].


So this explains that a decimal format declaration defines a decimal format;
but it doesn't explain how!

It doesn't explain for example that the StringLiteral following the
DFPropertyName "per-mille" defines the value of the "per-mille-sign" property.
