2.15 Equivalence of Components

* For values of a simple type (see 2.14 XML Schema 1.0 Simple Types Used in the Component Model), this means that they contain the exact same values. For instance, two string values are equivalent if they contain the same sequence of Unicode characters, as described in [Character Model for the WWW]

Should we not be talking about value-space equivalence rather than strict lexical-space equivalent? For instance, 1 and true would not be equivalent according to this definition, whereas they would according to the XML Infoset.

Strike the word "exact", add the boolean example to the "for instance".
