equal descriptions of Week 1 (from WikiPedia)
- the week with 4 January in it,
- the first week with the majority (four or more) of its days in the starting year, and
- the week starting with the Monday in the period 29 December – 4 January.
UPDATE: While not a complete solution, Bora Beran has porvided a helpful workbook that accomplishes defining ISO8601 weeks across years - found here: http://https://public.tableau.com/profile/bora.beran#!/vizhome/Iso8601/iso8601
