Please re-read 14652 about week:

     If the keyword is not specified the values are taken as 7, 19971130
     (a Sunday), and 7 (Saturday), respectively. ISO 8601 conforming
     applications should use the values 7, 19971201 (a Monday), and 4
     (Thursday), respectively. This keyword is optional.

Hence 1 can designate a Sunday (default value), or a Monday (ISO 8601
behavior), or actually anything else (other week systems).
