           Summary: "omit-xml-declaration" should be implementation-defined
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XQuery
        AssignedTo: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com
        ReportedBy: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com
         QAContact: public-qt-comments@w3.org

Appendix C.3 of the XQuery document states that the default value of the "omit-
xml-declaration" serialization parameter is "yes". This means that an 
implementation is not allowed to provide an XML declaration in serialized 
output unless explicitly requested to do so. Providing an XML declaration is 
good practice, especially if an encoding other than UTF-8 or UTF-16 is used. 
The default value of this parameter should be changed to "implementation-
defined". This change will be consistent with several other serialization 
parameters, and will allow each implementation to define its own policy with 
respect to XML declarations.
