[OAI-implementers] Granularity in Identity and Responses

As the best of my knowledge the Identify/granularity means
the highest granularity that can be used either
1) in the from and until arguments of ListRecords or
2) in the datestamps of the records.
Smaller granularity can be used of course.

There is no any connection between 
1) the granularity of the response date given by the server
in all OAI response headers and
2) the datestamps used in the records.
