draft attribute value when missing is unclear

Reported by: Philip@… Owned by: mark
Component: xxx-spec Data Locale:
Phase: Review: pedberg
Weeks: Data Xpath:


In UTS #35, Appendix I.3, it says of the "draft" attribute:

Note: A missing draft attribute is not the same as either a true or false value. A missing attribute means instead: inherit the draft status from enclosing elements and parent locales.

However, examining for example, af.xml and looking at the


nodes, some don't have a "draft" attribute and neither does any parent node (including in any parent or fallback locale) so it's hard to see how such leaf nodes could "inherit the status from enclosing elements and parent locales".

The only way to deal with this when parsing LDML is to assume absence is "draft=approved" which is expressely disallowed by the comment quoted above.

Fixed the statement.

Also removed "It can be applied to any element. " for validSubLocales, since it is only allowed on certain elements in the DTD.
