Subject: RE: Datatype section


{:>) Since when did Fortran invent the Decimal data type - that's a COBOL

BTW, I'll be submitting some comments on this section soon.  The section
takes the approach that "if it's in XML, we must want it" whereas what we
are about is "if the ebXML Requirements present a need for a particular
datatype, we must define that data type".  How that datatype is mapped into
XML is an implementation detail (an important one yes, but we need to start
from an implementation independent viewpoint.).  If, for some given datatype
we have to define (e.g., time duration) the best mapping we can provide in
XML is '#PCDATA', that's life.
