           Summary: nullable or non-nullable sequence type == sequence
                    type ?

in 3.2.2 appears "The type of the attribute must not be a nullable or
non-nullable sequence type, and it must not be a union type if one of its
member types (or one of its member types’s member types, and so on) is a
nullable or non-nullable sequence type."

is it not redundant to say "nullable or non-nullable sequence type" when
"sequence type" would suffice? or is not the case that "nullable or
non-nullable" is tautologous? if it is not, then an example is sorely needed
