Data Types Issue 39: DEL null content issue

Introduction

DEL in ENXP and ADXP contain no string but do not have a null Flavor. This violates a constraint in the abstract datatypes that strings must have a length of more than one or a null flavor.

backwards compatibility: this is clarification of an existing issue

Discussion

Gunther & Grahame: suggest to arbitrarily define that a DEL has implicit content of a line break. (private email)

Resolution

Motion to note that DEL has implicit content of a line break passed in INM 30 April 2007.
