           Summary: R-185: Question about cardinality of calendar types
           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

The datatypes for recurring calendar events (specifically gMonthDay, gDay and 
gMonth) are all recorded in appendix A with: 

<hfp:hasProperty name="cardinality" value="countably infinite"/> 
However it appears that there are at most 366 days in a year, and at most 59? 
timezones or maybe 290000 if we take an extremist view of the possible 
timezones. (Alternatively, the lexical form is of finite length and comes from 
a finite vocabulary, hence there are finitely many different lexical forms). 

Is this an oversight?
