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

SECTION 3: Serialization parameters

The parameter "version" is said to be "the version of the output
method".  Viewing an output method as a deliverable product,
or component of a deliverable product,
the version of the output method is not subject to
change from invocation to invocation, and hence is not a 
parameter in the usual meaning of the term, being rather a 
descriptive identifier about the output method, just the same as
the name of the vendor selling the output method is not a 
parameter, it is a descriptive identifier.  Perhaps what is meant
is the version of XML to be generated.  This is corroborated by
section 4.1 "XML output method: the version parameter".

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

     In response to another last call comment, the description of the 
version parameter no longer appears in Section 3 "Serialization 
Parameters".  Instead, descriptions of this parameter appear in the 
definitions of the XML and HTML output methods.

     I would appreciate if you could check the next draft of the 
specification when it becomes available, and verify that those definitions 
of the version parameter are acceptable to you.
