--- Comment #6 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
I was asked to draft text to implement the suggstion by Anders in comment 5.
The following text is proposed:

ISO 8601 does not define a numbering for weeks within a month. When the
<code>w</code>
               component is used, the convention to be adopted is that each
Monday-to-Sunday week is considered to
               fall within a particular month if its Thursday occurs in that
month; the weeks that fall in a particular
               month under this definition are numbered starting from 1. Thus,
for example, 
               29 January 2013 falls in week 5 because the Thursday of the
relevant week (31 January 2013) is the fifth Thursday
               in January, and 1 February 2013 is also in week 5 for the same
reason.
