That's a good catch. Yes the operand intended in the 3rd bullet is $actual.

The intended signature is to take an optional atomic value (it is always applied
in a context of an operator which expects an optional atomic value, like
arithmetic operations, or value comparisons, or bounded by existential
quantification). The 

I believe we should make the following two fixes:

 * We should change the 3rd bullet to:

    3. Otherwise, $actual is returned unchanged.

 * We should change the signature to:

fs:convert-operand($actual as xdt:anyAtomicType?, $expected as
xdt:anyAtomicType) as xdt:anyAtomicType ?
