* Abolished neg_numeral.
  * Canonical representation for minus one is "- 1".
  * Canonical representation for other negative numbers is
    "- (numeral _)".
  * When devising rule sets for number calculation, consider the
    following cases: 0, 1, numeral _, - 1, - numeral _.
  * Syntax for negative numerals is mere input syntax.

in the numeral area are strongly encouraged to comment.
