The note for att.combinable begins, "The informal meaning of the values for mode is as follows:". This feels a bit sloppy to me since it's not clear what an informal meaning is and why we're giving it. Based on my understanding of the purpose of what follows and how it relates the definitions of the legal values given elsewhere in the spec, I suggest revising to: "An ODD processor should handle the legal values of @mode as follows:"

If I understand correctly, a new ticket should be created, in the Roma category, explaining that if an <attDef> does not have a @mode, Roma currently does not "raise an error if an object with the same identifier already exists" but that it should.

    I've made the suggested change to the wording at rev 10819.
