           Summary: datatypes not ·ordered·, but ordered {value} is partial
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2

The definition of ·ordered· in 4.2.1 requires that all values in the value
space of the datatype inquestion must be from the same primitive datatype.  The
algorithm for calculating the {value} of the ordered schema component give the
value partial for a union some of whose basic members are ordered but whose
value space is not a subset of that of a single primitive datatype.  E.g., if A
is the union of decimal and string, and B is the union of dateTime and decimal,
neither A nor B are ·ordered·, but for both the {value} of the ordered facet is
partial.  The definitions should be harmonized one way or the other.
