      Description

      The language for DateTime and Time comparison indicates that seconds and milliseconds are to be combined as a decimal and compared using decimal comparison semantics. However, the specification implies, but does not explicitly state those semantics. Propose adding the clarification:

      For integer and decimal values, standard ordinal semantics apply.
