Description Florent Georges 2009-04-23 15:32:29 UTC

  In the current PER for XDM, the definition of "primitive simple
type" has been changed from:

    There are 23 primitive simple types: the 19 defined in
    Section 3.2 Primitive datatypesXS2 of [Schema Part 2] and
    xs:untyped, xs:untypedAtomic, xs:anyAtomicType,
    xs:dayTimeDuration, and xs:yearMonthDuration], defined in 2.6


    There are 21 primitive simple types: the 19 defined in
    Section 3.2 Primitive datatypesXS2 of [Schema Part 2] and
    xs:untypedAtomic and xs:anyAtomicType], defined in 2.6 Types.

  So from the 5 additional types, only 2 are still there.  But
section 2.6.2 still defines all 5 types

  Is that normal?

Personal response, not on behalf of the working groups:  The key is that the list is a list of the primitive simple types.  xs:untyped is not a simple type, and xs:dayTimeDuration and xs:yearMonthDuration are not primitive types, so they should not have appeared on that list in the first edition.  They are all predefined types, however, so they still appear in section 2.6.2.

Thanks, yes you're right.  I close the issue as INVALID, hope that's the right thing to do.
