--- Comment #2 from Abel Braaksma <abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl> ---
On (a), the only specification I can think of, is to follow the same rules for
the first week of the year in ISO 8601. However, definitions on "week of the
month" varies even greater than the first week of the year definitions.

Here's an interesting thread on the subject that I came across:
http://linguistlist.org/issues/12/12-1858.html

On (b): I think this is fair

On (c) that would mean a backward compatibility issue. Don't think we should
want to do that.

On (d) personally, I prefer that option, but as with (c), it is a backward
compatibility issue if we do so.

I don't see any harm in keeping it around, though a note on its
underspecification in ISO 8601 might be a good idea.
