I have not had time to adequately study the rationale for the
identify-versus-denote distinction that Pat Hayes gave regarding
datatypes.  Nonetheless, I think it is unlikely that this issue by
itself would seem important enough to me to file a formal objection.
However, in some sense this issue is merely a part of a larger iceberg
that I am still discussing with Pat Hayes on the www-archive@w3.org
list, in this thread:
So in that sense, I think it would make sense for the fate of this issue
to track the fate of that larger issue (probably under ISSUE-148).

ISSUE-147 is close to being satisfactory.  I am awaiting a response from
Peter Patel-Schneider:
(Hmm, that's not the latest email we exchanged, so it looks like part of
our conversation inadvertently went off list.)  However, I anticipate
that this will be resolved satisfactorily, i.e., I do not expect it to
lead to a formal objection.

ISSUE-148 is very important to me, and I have been discussing the
iceberg that underlies it, with Pat Hayes:
I hope that we will be able to craft wording that will be acceptable to
all, so that a formal objection can be avoided, but it is not assured.

ISSUE-159 is almost satisfactory.  I emailed Pat Hayes off list about
this, and have not yet seen a response:
[Off list]

Hi Pat,

That looks good except that the font on the word "interpretation" is
wrong: it is not appearing in bold as other defined terms appear when
they are introduced.

Could you please fix that so that I can send back my official response
saying that I am happy with this resolution?
