           Summary: equality need not be reflexive?
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: davep@iit.edu

In 1.1 we long ago decided to accommodate NaN != NaN by allowing equality to
not be reflexive (not require x = x for all x).  In doing so, we failed to
delete this parenthetical statement in 2.2.2

  (and must do so if they choose to consider them identical)

which would require that other applications treat NaN as equal to itself even
though we don't.
