Hi Erik,

It was needed today, so I completed the task.  It is now approaching 1am, 
so I will talk to you in the morning about it if needed.

For the record, we did not re-add the text in a different place.
We did put aspects of the former text back *because* we lost important use 
cases without them, such as the ability to insert attributes.

Please note that the amended text *must* still be predicated on the type 
of cloned node and/or the type of insert location node.  It will be 
obvious once you review the text that this is both unavoidable and quite 
natural. For example, if the context attribute is used to specify the 
parent of the cloned node, one must still decide whether to add the cloned 
node to the attribute list or child list based on whether or not the 
cloned node is an attribute. 

Anyway, the result of your request (context for parent container, nodeset 
for sibling) has made insert easier to understand, which was the goal.
We hope to discuss transition to CR in the morning, so please review by 

Thank you,
John M. Boyer, Ph.D.

My initial comment proposed the removal of that text with a certain
intent, which was clearly explained (and re-explained in this thread).

If then the content of that removed text is re-added but in a
different place, then the removal obviously does nothing to achieve
that intent.

I will attempt to do this today.
