           Summary: Editorial: xs:anyAtomicType does not exist, but
                    xdt:anyAtomicType do
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators

In section 17.1 Casting from primitive types to primitive types, the fourth
paragraph reads:

Similarly, casting is not supported to or from xs:anyAtomicType. There are no
atomic values with the type annotation xs:anyAtomicType at runtime, although
this can be a statically inferred type.

The paragraph refers to xs:anyAtomicType which doesn't exist. A typo for "xdt",
I guess.

I searched for the same typo in XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model, XQuery 1.0
and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators, and XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language,
but could not find any. (However, in Formal Semantics there are, I'll submit)

I found this because I grepped for the typo in my code -- I myself often trip on
this! If you internally have release check-point lists, you could add for
example "search for xs:anyAtomicType".
