> One thing I wanted to add: It is possibly to omit the "[1-9]m" part, but I would strongly recommend to write this always as "0m+2" etc. To me, the regex that defines this data type (available from http://www.music-encoding.org/documentation/guidelines2013/data.MEASUREBEAT) is defined too loosely. I would also advise against the whitespaces in there, even though they may increase readability (I guess that's their justification in the first place). What do others think – should we provide stricter rules for data.MEASUREBEAT, or should we leave it as open as it is now?

Everything that adds consistency and simplifies processing of MEI data
without removing flexibility and without making things more difficult
for encoders has my vote.
