[F&O] XSCH-FO-007 Casting numerics and inconsistency

Dear Colleagues,

This comment pertains to the 25 December 2003 internal WD of XQuery 1.0
and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators, as provided to our WG [1].

XSCH-FO-007 Casting numerics and inconsistency (17.8)

We note that 17.8.3 can raise one error for any failure to
convert to decimal, but 17.8.4 can use one of two errors
for failure to convert to integer.  We believe the failure
cases are the same (number too large or illegal value, e.g., NaN),
so we think these sections should be consistent.
