I use the term "week number of the last day" as a kind of function in the 
spec, so while it may be obvious, it has to be listed explicitly otherwise 
one could argue that it isn't defined. (I could probably just stop using 
it as a function and just assume that people will apply common sense, but 
sometimes that doesn't work so well...)
