Re: DTB frozen and last changes

I believe the two editor's notes at the end of section 1 are obsolete.
As I pointed out earlier today, there are problems with the definitions
of literalNotIdentical and isLiteralOfType [1]. It would be good to have
links to this e-mail in relevant parts of the document so that we don't
forget it.
Concerning the last editor's note in section 3.1: it was decided that
the value spaces of decimal and double are disjoint. ( I believe this
was a resolution in the last face-to-face )
I'm hoping that the issue pointed out in the first editor's note in
section 3.2 can be addressed quickly, since it has been a long standing
issue that really needs to be addressed before we can publish the next
revision of this document.


Best, Jos
