Oh, *now* I see what you mean.  Sometimes it takes being hit over the 
head with a 2x4 :-).  Thanks for persevering.

That's a good plan.  Would you mind proposing the specific changed text, 
since you noticed this?  Robert Weir wants to describe the whole thing 
as a separate type, but it'd clearly be easier to simply make this 
clarification instead.  And even if eventually we described it as a 
separate type (which I'm not sure we really should do since ISNUMBER() 
etc. reveal they're really numbers), we would STILL want this clarification.
