--- Comment #5 from Anders Berglund <alb.w3c@gmail.com> ---
The definition of the week varies and such local variations are
handled based on language and place. For example the first day
of week (using the "AD" calendar) is commonly either Sunday or
Monday and we cannot mandate either to be used.

Only the ISO "calendar" is precicesly defined and includes a
definitionb of "W" - week in year. Thus it is appropriate for F&O
to include a definition of "w" for use with the ISO calendar
specification.

For other calendars - including the AD one - the result is
implementation defined and should be based on the conventions
based on language and place.
