ah, fine, dunno how I stumbled over that, sorry for the confusion then, 
everything fine then! I see now: google tricked me... when i looked for
yearMonthDuration I accidently got to an old WD as the first link, weird.

It was basically, I guess, because the document started with onyl the

Datatypes consistently, without wanting to discuss whether one or the 
other makes "more sense", I just want it consistent. ;-)
