2E PER probable editorial problem, min/maxExclusive facets

The attempt to make redundant derivations using repeated Exclusive
facets with the same value works only part way.  According to the
definitions, One can derive a from decimal setting using
maxExclusive = 29, redundantly derive b from a using maxExclusive = 29,
but are then not permitted to derive c from b again using
maxExclusive = 29.  (Weird, but that's the way it is.)

This one-level redundancy is explicitly permitted by the definitions
of minExclusive and maxExclusive, but didn't make its way into the
descriptions of the schema components, nor of the XML representation
summaries.  So they contradict the definition.  I suspect this is an
editorial error in 2E PER.
