           Summary: R-119: Question about the value space for date
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 2: Datatypes
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: sandygao@ca.ibm.com

The Datatypes spec states that the value space of date is the set of Gregorian 
calendar dates as defined in 5.2.1 of [ISO 8601]." It then says: "Since the 
lexical representation allows an optional time zone indicator...". However, 
there is nothing in 5.2.1 of ISO 8601 (at least not the 2000 edition) which 
suggests that a date can have an optional time zone indicator, or that suggests 
how it would be written if it were allowed. If this deviation from ISO 8601 is 
deliberate, which it seems to be, it should surely be flagged in Appendix D3. 
In fact, this seems to be the only case where Part 2 specifies a format that is 
definitely not allowed by ISO 8601; the other deviations are either 
restrictions, or things that ISO 8601 permits provided the parties agree.
