Hi Erik,

Looks pretty good to me.

I have general remark on using the select attribute instead of nodeset is that when we are going to allow XPath 2.0 there are also use cases for allowing sequences of item() instead of a nodeset as we know it today for repeat. So I'm not really sure what the best solution for this is, introducing a new attribute that supports item()* or relax the value space of nodeset. I know that the name nodeset hints a set or sequence of node() but on the other hand introducing a new attribute for item()* complicates XForms.

>Should the element support the "model", "ref", "value", "bind" attributes as well?
If we do not introduce a new select attribute I think we should also support "model", "ref", "value", "bind" (I think model should be supported either way)

>Can we support a QName for the context information name?
I agree that this should be names according to the DOM-Level-2-Events spec (are mapped to members in JavaScript for example), and therefore we can't allow QNames because other consumers won't be able to handle our events.
