--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
I notice that the "comma or semicolon" phrase was not there in XSLT 2.0, but it
was present in the first published draft of F+O 3.0 (then called "1.1" - 15 Dec
2009). That's also the first time that the paragraph appears saying what
happens if there are two commas present. So I suspect that what happened is
that we found there was a problem if you wanted to use a comma to separate
seconds from fractional seconds; someone proposed allowing a semicolon as an
alternative to comma for the width specifier; we resolved instead to make the
last comma the one that counts; but the text suggesting the semicolon
alternative remained in the spec.

I haven't been able to find the discussion that let this change.
