[sc34wg3] CXTM Issue: Values

Hi all,

The current CXTM draft <http://www.isotopicmaps.org/cxtm/2008-04-14/>
is silent about the canonical representation of values.

From my understanding of the current draft; this may lead into
different canonical representations of the same topic map.

Example: xsd:boolean has four valid lexical representations: "true",
"false", "0", "1"; CXTM does not enforce that the canonical
representation ("true" / "false") of xsd:boolean is used; it would be
legal to use "0" or "1" in the CXTM output.

Shouldn't it made explicit, that the canonical form of the value
according to the datatype should be used in the CXTM output?

Best regards,
