In section 3.2.7.3 on the order relation of dateTime, at B.1, it says:
  1.. If P[i] and Q[i] are both not specified, continue to the next i
  2.. If P[i] is not specified and Q[i] is, or vice versa, stop and return P
<> Q
This doesn't make any sense to me.  When could P[i] or Q[i] be "not
specified"? In dateTime all fields are specified.

When things like gYearMonth appeal to the dateTime order, they do so by
saying eg "the order relation on gYearMonth values is the order relation on
their starting instants", so in this case also all fields are totally
specified.

I think the above two sentences should be deleted.
