--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
Sorry, I don't understand. In what way does the phrase "for example" fail to
signal that the text in question is an example and therefore non-normative?

For instance, in what way do you consider the following text (in section 4.4.1)
to be unclear, and how would you suggest it could be improved?

For the four types xs:float, xs:double, xs:decimal and xs:integer, it is
guaranteed that if the type of $arg is an instance of type T then the result
will also be an instance of T. The result may also be an instance of a type
derived from one of these four by restriction. For example, if $arg is an
instance of xs:positiveInteger then the value of $arg may be returned
