Issue

Unsigned integers are defined in 7-2, Table 2 as
INT32U Unsigned integer, 0 to 4 294 967 295
In Part 8, such integers are to be mapped to
the MMS type of Unsigned (Table 2) or rather "unsigned" since this a type derived from MMS "Data".
However, ConfRev in Table 50 should be mapped to the MMS type "int32u" which is not defined in MMS. I presume it should be mapped to MMS "unsigned". But then, this conflicts with Annex A that says it is mapped to an INTEGER. So Annex A must restrict ConfRev to be positive only.

I agree with the problem statement. The syntax should be revised to be INTERGER with a restricted range as specified for INT32U.
