--- Comment #2 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
I propose:

1) In 4.7.1, change the column-2 table entry for "mandatory digit" from "A
single ·character·, which must be defined in Unicode as a digit" to "A single
·character·, which must be a chanracter in Unicode category Nd with decimal
digit value zero".

2) Add to the Note at the start of 4.7.3: "The digits must all be from the same
*decimal digit family*, that is, the set of 10 consecutive digits starting with
the *mandatory digit-sign* defined in the decimal format.

I think these changes are purely editorial, in the sense that they do not say
anything that cannot already be inferred. The discussion of the syntax of the
picture string is clear, I think, that digits from the "decimal digit family"
(a defined term) have a specific meaning, and that "any other character"
(including a digit from a different digit family) is a passive character, which
is allowed but has a different meaning.

I'm changing the status to "minor" which makes it an issue that can be resolved
at the editor's discretion in that it does not affect any implementations or
test cases.

Paul, as the originator, if you agree with this resolution, I would be grateful
if you would mark this as closed.
