           Summary: [XSLT 2.0] format-date/dateTime/time() fallback prefixes
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.0

The text looks both a little vague, and slightly off the ball to me.
"If the fallback representation uses a different calendar from that requested,
the output string must be prefixed with [Calendar: X] where X identifies the
calendar actually used. The string Calendar should be localized using the
requested language if available. "

This might result in a very odd string if the language concerned uses
right-to-left ordering. You will end up with something vaguely like:
[radnelaC: X]
Judging by the Hebrew examples, this is not what is intended.

Secondly, I am not 100% sure where the [Language: Y] string comes when the
[Calendar: X] string is also needed. Which comes first?
