Perhaps. But I think there are two distinct issues here. One is
whether EXTRACT(week) is assigning reasonable week numbers to dates;
this depends on your convention for which day is the first of a week
as well as your convention for the first week of a year (both possibly
should depend on locale as Hannu suggests). The other issue is what
to_date(...,'WWYYYY') should do to produce a date representing a week
number. Shouldn't it always produce the first date of that week?
If not, what other conventions make sense?
