Re: Patch: numericString clarification in nadf.schema (ITS#1669)

Yes, a numeric string is a character string restricted
to numbers and spaces and compared sans the spaces.

The comments in the nadf.schema document are aimed to
highlight a NADF technical specification problem.  That is,
NADF spec has language which implies "leading zero is
significant" yet uses numericString/numericStringMatch.

The comments likely should be reworded for clarity, not

I note that this schema will likely be pulled from RE 2.1.
