Yes, thanks, this is an area we are cleaning up this week. I'll let you 
know when we think we've got all of the formatting consistent.

The argument is that these are pair-wise constraints, so you would 
adjust the direction of the values rather than use GT. If you can think 
of an example of when that would not be convenient, I can take it to the 
W3C group. (This may make more sense if you look at section 4.6 of the 
main document, here[1].)
