Summary

Hi all,

When we introduced the Percentage and the DecimalFraction types, we agreed to define DecimalFraction as "A type defining a decimal fraction from 0 to 1 (base 1). A percentage of 5% would be represented as 0.05."
Based on that definition we restricted the definition of the type to allow values from 0 to 1 only:
MaxInclusive: 1
MinInclusive: 0
However, for Security Lending we have fractions that may be greater than 1 and/or negative. What should we do for those elements?
  • Should we create a more flexible Decimal Fraction type that allows negative values and values greater than one?
  • Should the security lending elements use xsd:decimal directly?
Let us know what you think.
Thanks,
Marc
