           Summary: [F030] format-integer language argument
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Member-only Editors Drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 3.0

The following formatting functions all accept the empty sequence for the
$language argument.

    fn:format-dateTime($value as xs:dateTime?, $picture as xs:string, $language
as xs:string?, $calendar as xs:string?, $place as xs:string?) as xs:string?

    fn:format-date($value as xs:date?, $picture as xs:string, $language as
xs:string?, $calendar as xs:string?, $place as xs:string?) as xs:string?

    fn:format-time($value as xs:time?, $picture as xs:string, $language as
xs:string?, $calendar as xs:string?, $place as xs:string?) as xs:string?

and have consistent handling of the $language argument.

However fn:format-integer does not permit the empty sequence and has
inconsistent handling of invalid values.

    fn:format-integer($value as xs:integer?, $picture as xs:string, $language
as xs:string) as xs:string

Could this not be made consistent with the other formatting functions, so that

1. a call to the two-argument function is equivalent to a call to the
three-argument version with the third argument set to the empty sequence.

2. If the $language argument is omitted or is set to an empty sequence, or if
it is set to an invalid value or a value that the implementation does not
recognize, then the processor uses an ·implementation-defined· language.

3. FOFI0001 is no longer required.
