[sc34wg3] atomic?

Another minor editorial niggle:

4.4 Datatypes, first paragraph begins:

"The only *atomic* fundamental types...."

Shouldn't that be:

"The only fundamental datatypes..."

This is the only use of "atomic" and it doesn't add anything to 
fundamental. Thinking "types" should be "datatypes."

Actually I would suggest recasting the first sentence as follows:

"The only fundamental datatypes defined in this document are strings and 
null. Through the concept of datatypes data of any type can be 
represented in this model."

Hope you are having a great day!
