In 4.3.1.1, it is explicitly asserted "If {fixed} is true, then types for which
the current type is the {base type definition} cannot specify a value for
length other than {value}."  In the case of length, this is true regardless of
whether {fixed} is true of false.  This makes the unadorned sentence seem a bit
odd--conclusion true regardless of the truth of the hypothesis.  Perhaps a
mention of why this is true but unusual would be in order.
