Issue 389 has been closed [1]. The resolution refers to [2] and [3].  As
editor, I have been working on integrating these changes, which should be
visible in the XML copy at [4] (sorry, I am not set up to generate HTML, so
other editors will probably do that soon.)

For the most part, the changes have gone smoothly, but I'm having trouble
with the revisions described in [3].  First of all, the interplay between
Jacek and Herve isn't entirely clear.  My reading is that the result is to
be a sentence in 2.3 [5] that reads:

"A simple value is represented as a graph node with an optional lexical
value."

How can it be that a value is represented by an optional value?  I wonder
whether we have a bug in the resolution.  Seems to me that we may now have
three types of nodes representing, respectively:

1) Simple values
2) Compound values
3) Missing values

Is that what the workgroup intends?  If so, I'm not sure how much rework of
the rest of the encoding section is needed. The sentence above, which is in
the editor's draft for now, strikes me as incoherent.  Maybe I'm missing
something?  The rest of the changes for 389 are checked into the XML for
part 2, and I think they're OK.
