Subject: recalculation model and chapter 3 generally


Questions and observations on chapter 3:

3.1 Expression Calculation - to the extent this is a non-normative 
explanation of expression calculation that it should go in a 
non-normative annex?

3.2 Non-Scalar Evaluation - is this normative or explanatory?

3.3 OpenDocument Calculation Settings - I feel uncertain about the 
appearance of this in part 2. We already define these attributes and 
their semantics in part 1. It those definitions are in some way 
insufficient, we should correct them in part 1. Note that for 
table:search-criteria-must-apply-to-whole-cell, the definition is the 
basis for a *shall* statement.

3.4 strikes me as explanatory material that could be in an annex but it 
doesn't offer any normative requirements.

3.5 err, if we admit we don't define/require a numeric model, enough has 
been said. Suggest we lose this section, unless in some more useful form 
as part of an annex.

3.6 this needs to move to conformance, be cast as evaluators and do 
whatever needs to be done with the portable language stuff.

Seems to me that we could move the non-normative parts of 3 to an annex 
and combine what little normative material there is with the conformance 
clauses. That would eliminate chapter 3 as it presently stands, which 
would re-number everything else so would appreciate some quick feedback 
on this structural change. (Noting that we can keep the non-normative 
content, just not here.)

Hope everyone is having a great day!
