NOT11 — Section 2.4.6 : positional notation wrt to unions

  • Summary:

    Summary: In section 2.4.6 of the Notification Spec, there"s a discussion about
    positional notation wrt to unions. Examples are given using the
    constraints of the form $.(nn). e.g.,
    $.(3).2 < 128

    However, this isn"t syntactically correct. the Compdot syntactic
    category is given as:

    <CompDot> := <CompIdent> | <CompPos> | ** the "_" literals **

    <CompIdent> must begin with an <Ident> which must begin with an
    aphabetic char.
    <CompPos> must begin with a digit.

    <Component> may be empty, in which case an operator like +,-, and, or,
    etc will be expected, but not a "(".
    The same mistake is made throughout Section 2.4.6, in the fifth,
    sixth, and seventh paragraphs. There are also some comments such as "
    .. using run time variables as "$(3).2 < 128" .." in the fifth
    paragraph that don"t make sense. (That example is wrong because a
    runtime variables must be introduced by $<Ident>.)
