I don't view it as a substantive change but rather a failure to document
expected usage and prior intention. For example, we have:

The *Root Temporal Extent*, i.e., the time interval over which a *Document

... if the anonymous span's parent time container is a sequential time

Further, syntactically, dur was defined to be a <timeExpression> which
clearly allows dur="0s".

So we are really just clarifying a pre-existing state: that we allow a
duration of value 0.
