The official definition is at < http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#positiveInteger >.  It states that positiveInteger is the infinite set {1, 2, 3, ...}.

To be pedantically correct, we'd have to define our own simpleType, derived from positiveInteger, and upper bounded to (2^53)-1.  Otherwise, since the value can't be less than 1, positiveInteger is the most appropriate.

I'll endeavor to construct that legend, but would not mind any assistance (-:

In theory, more connections means less latency.  In practice, anything more than 1 held connection (so a maximum of 2 requests) starts to violate the in-order delivery rules from RFC 6120.
