[Bug 9541] New: TokenInfo term confusing


           Summary: TokenInfo term confusing

>From section 4.1.2:

Definition: A TokenInfo represents a contiguous collection of tokens from an
XML document. 

In comparison for QueryTokenInfo:

Definition: A QueryTokenInfo is the identity of a [single] token inside a query

Assuming that my insertion of the word "single" into the definition of
QueryTokenInfo for clarity is correct, then a QueryTokenInfo is info for a
single token whereas TokenInfo is info for "a contiguous collection of tokens."

The name "TokenInfo" sounds like it has info only for a single token, but it
actually is either a "range" or "span" of info for "a contiguous collection of

I therefore suggest that "TokenInfo" be renamed to something like "TokenSpan"
or "TokenRange".
