            Bug ID: 29963
           Summary: [FO31] Relation item type vs list types
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 3.0
          Assignee: mike@saxonica.com

  Target Milestone: ---

(part of the series of issues on FO31 review)

The section 1.6 on the type system does not make clear what the relation is
between item and list types. In particular, the first diagram starts with item,
and has xs:anyAtomicType as a descendant. The second diagram also has
xs:anyAtomicType in it, with xs:anySimpleType as parent.

You may deduce from this that item == xs:anySimpleType, or more indirectly,
item is a parent (and therefore an instance of) list types, but I doubt that is
the intent.

I have to admit I am not sure how this could be drawn differently, perhaps a
note that explains the relation between diagram 1 and 2 better?
