           Summary: [XSLT 2.0] Selecting non-traditional numbering in
                    format-date() and format-integer()
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Proposed Edited Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.0

In xsl:number, we have the attribute letter-value="alphabetic|traditional",
with the default being implementation-dependent.

In format-date() and the new format-integer(), a "t" in the picture requests
traditional numbering, and there is no way to represent the alternative
(alphabetic). This rather forces the system to make alphabetic the default,
which is not necessarily desirable. Should we perhaps introduce modifiers T and
O (or a and c for alphabetic/cardinal) to represent the converse of t and o?
