     In [1], you submitted the following comment on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization:

Serialization Section 4, "XML Output Method": The statement in Bullet 6 is 

backward. Additional namespace nodes may be generated if the serialization 

process FAILS to undeclare namespaces. In addition, the namespace nodes 
may be different after round-tripping because the process of constructing 
an element node from an infoset may ignore namespaces that are not used in 

element or attribute names (see Data Model Section 6.2.4, Element Node 
Construction from Infoset".)

     Thank you for your comment.

     The XSL and XML Query Working Groups discussed your comment, and 
decided to make the corrections that you had recommended, with a small 
refinement:  that namespace nodes must not be ignored if the round-tripped 
data model instance is constructed from PSVI if the namespace prefix was 
used in a value of type xs:QName.

     As you were present when this decision was made, I will assume the 
response is acceptable to you.
