WG4-0002: I'm confused

Doesn't DR-09-0002 specifically ask that we extend the allowed range for ST_HoleSize from 10 to 90 to 1 to 90?

17.	DR 09-0002 - SML, Charts: Incorrect range restriction in ST_HoleSize
Status: Closed; will be incorporated in COR1
Subject: SML, Charts: Incorrect range restriction in ST_HoleSize
Qualifier: Technical defect
Submitter: TC45 (Ecma)
Contact Information: Rex Jaeschke (rex at RexJaeschke.com)
Submitter's Defect Number: Ecma-09-002
Supporting Document(s): none
Date Circulated by Secretariat: 2009-01-21
Deadline for Response from Editor: 2009-03-21
IS 29500 Reference(s): Part 1: §, "ST_HoleSize (Hole Size)", p. 3884
Related DR(s): none
Nature of the Defect:
The standard states that the ST_HoleSize simple type has a minimum value of 10.  
This is incompatible with existing documents and should be updated to reflect such prior art.
When defining a donut chart, the ST_HoleSize simple type is used to define the size of the hole in the chart.  This simple type expresses the size of the hole as a percentage of the size of the chart.
Existing documents contain donut charts with hole sizes in the range of 1 percent to 90 percent.

I thought that that was the motivation for the change.  I quickly scanned the DR log and I can't find another DR which appears to reverse this DR or otherwise create a conflict ...

Dear colleagues,

I'm confused. 

The draft minutes contain "Wg4 agreed that the Part 4 description needed minor editing to implement properly the intent of the DR resolution to allow 1-9% as well."

I thought that I only have to fix schema bugs.  But prose in the current draft of the Part1 FDAM certainly disallows 1-9%.
Should we change the prose and schema fragments so that 1-9% is always disallosed?

I scanned the DR Log, but I cannot find any DRs for allowing 1-9%.

Part 1 FPDAM1


This simple type specifies that its contents contain a percentage between 10% and 90%. 
The simple type's contents shall match the following regular expression
pattern: 0*(([1-8][0-9])|90)%.


	<xsd:simpleType name="ST_HoleSizePercent">
		<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
			<xsd:pattern value="0*([1-9]|([1-8][0-9])|90)%"/>


dchrt_ST_HoleSizePercent =
  xsd:string { pattern = "0*([1-9]|([1-8][0-9])|90)%" }

Part 4 FPDAM1


	<xsd:simpleType name="ST_HoleSizePercent">
		<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
			<xsd:pattern value="0*(([1-8][0-9])|90)%"/>

dchrt_ST_HoleSizePercent =
  xsd:string { pattern = "0*(([1-8][0-9])|90)%" }
