xsd:unsignedByte + xsd:unsignedShort = xsd:decimal?

Hi,

According to SPARQL test 'typePromotion-decimal-decimal-pass' (below),
adding unsignedByte to unsignedShort should return xsd:decimal.
According to http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-functions/#numeric-functions however
this should be xsd:integer (which makes more sense to me).  Am I correct to
conclude this test is wrong?

	Thanks --- Jan
