Remarks about data-model 1.0 draft

[Issue: Months only provide an approximate means to specify duration
since individual months
           vary in length.]

The SQL standard (ISO 9075:1992) suggests a good answer in 4.5.2:

There are two classes of intervals.
One class, called year-month interval ... includes no fields other than
YEAR and MONTH.
The other class, called day-time ... can include any fields other than
YEAR and MONTH.


Best regards

PS. What's the status of the widget def. language ?
    Will a draft be available soon, or is XUL a good starting
    point, or one of the other proposals ?
    What's the time scale for this draft ?

    Please send me just a short, non-binding answer/hint, it would
    help me very much !
