Maybe I missed something in the argument but does `denotation' 
distinguish between numerals (literals) denoting numbers and numerals 
(literals) denoting, say, dates. So the literal "20001225" has, at 
least, two denotations? Does this invalidate this definition? Do you 
mean `unique denotation'? If you don't, how does this definition stay valid?

As I suggest, I think I may be completely off-track in asking this.
