--- Comment #3 from Anders Berglund <alb.w3c@gmail.com> ---
The XSLT WG discussed this at the 2013-03-28 telcon.

A "w" specifier is found in many programming language function
libraries and environments [notably it is included in Java].

The consensus was to keep the "w" specifier and specify the semantics.

Proposed changes to F&O:

- In the last item in the list:

"The language is used to select the appropriate language-dependent forms of:

    names (for example, of months)
    numbers expressed as words or as ordinals (twenty, 20th, twentieth)
    hour convention (0-23 vs 1-24, 0-11 vs 1-12)
    first day of week, first week of year"

add "first week of the month".

- After the paragraph following the list (starting "Where appropriate...")
add a paragraph:

"ISO 8601 includes a definition of the first day of the week and first
week of the year, but does not define the first week of the month.
For this recommendation the ISO 8601 definitions are augmented by
a specification that each week begins on a Monday and is associated with
the month that contains that week's Thursday."

- In addition it seems to make sense to move the reference to
ISO 8601 from non-normative to normative.
