           Summary: R-190: Truncation is not defined
           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

Part 2: Datatypes frequently defines the lexical representation of one type as 
a "truncation" of that of another, without ever defining what is meant by this 
term. Sometimes it seems to have the conventional meaning of omitting 
characters from one end of a string, as in: 

The lexical representation for gYear is the reduced (right truncated) lexical 
representation for dateTime: CCYY. [section] 
Other times the omitted characters are replaced by other characters, as in: 

The lexical representation for gDay is the left truncated lexical 
representation for date: ---DD . [section] 
It's not difficult to understand what is meant, but the document overall 
aspires to (and for the most part handily achieves) a higher standard of 
precision. For consistency, I'd like to see the term defined in 1.1.
