> What advice should we give for representing durations?

XML Schema 1.1 will define two totally ordered restrictions on 
xs:duration: xs:yearMonthDuration and xs:dayTimeDuration [1] (following 
the recommendation of the Query WG) which will allay some of the fears 
people have in doing comparisons on xs:duration.  But, that's a 1.1 thing 
and xs:duration won't be deprecated, so advice is still needed for 
durations in general.
