SECTION 3.2: Path expressions

It says in the third paragraph after rule [70] that
"Each operation E1/E2 is evaluated as follows:
expression E1 is evaluated... The sequence of nodes resulting from
all evaluations of E2 are combined, eliminating duplicate nodes 
based on node identity and sorting the result in document order".
Later, in section 3.2.1 "Steps", in the last paragraph prior to the
final note, it says "If the axis is a reverse axis, context positions
are assigned in reverse document order."  These two sentences 
appear to be in contradiction.  Either reverse axes result in 
a sequence that is in forward document order, or the general
statement in 3.2 should say that the result is in either forward
or reverse document order.
