In 'begin' and 'end' at least, the syntax is extended with the sign, see  
e.g [1]. Other attributes have additional constraints, such as 'min' which  
says the 'Clock-value' must be greater than 0.

The sign prefix is accepted by the parser in Blink atm.

A negative repeatDur looks like it's just ignored, and a positive  
'Clock-value' with a + prefix is accepted and used.
