            Bug ID: 21370
           Summary: [w] component specifier in date/time formatting is
                    ill-specified
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 3.0

Section "9.8.4.1 The picture string" of the format date/time functions includes
the [w] specifier that means "week in month."  Additionally, the test
format-dateTime-011 uses [w] in conjunction with the ISO calendar.

However, the ISO 8601 specification has no notion of "week in month" (it only
has the notion of "week in year").

Somewhat related, the C function strftime(3) also has no conversion
specification for "week in month."

Hence, [w] has no precise meaning for ISO 8601 or in general.
