Editorial: Add BigInt to the list of reference base value types and the language types intro text #1773
Similar to #1769 — BigInt was absent from the list of types that the base value component of a Reference could be.
Note that it is already included and handled as a possible base value in the HasPrimitiveBase abstract op.
I was unsure if there was any particular logic to the ordering of types, so I just slotted it in the ‘most alphabetic’ seeming part of the list. Alternatively, the sentence could be reworded to avoid listing them all if it’s felt that this is becoming an update hazard, e.g.
Or, if it’s desired to draw additional attention to undefined’s distinct significance here:
EDIT: I meant, of course:
Thanks @claudepache, I’ve added the missing one you mentioned. For now I’ve left the full enumeration in the base value list to err on the side of minimal change, but will update it if it turns out there’s general agreement that a briefer version would be better.
