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

Serialization Section 3, "Serialization Parameters": The 
"undeclare-namespaces" parameter needs a better explanation. I am guessing 

that it means the following: If no namespace node attached to an element E 

defines the namespace prefix P, but P is defined by a namespace node 
attached to the parent of element E, then the serialization of element E 
must contain a namespace declaration attribute that binds the prefix P to 
an empty URI.

     Thank you for your comment, which I am handling editorially.

     The section titled, "Serialization Parameters" no longer includes a 
description of the purpose of the "undeclare-namespaces" parameter. 
Instead, I have attempted to improve the description of the parameter that 
appears in the section titled, "XML Output Method: the 
undeclare-namespaces Parameter".

     I would appreciate if you could check the next draft of the 
specification when it becomes available, and verify that the description 
that appears there is satisfactory..
