I think that your deductions are correct, and I think the explicit statement you
are looking for is already present in section 5.4.4.

I agree that the reader has to do a fair bit of jumping around the text to
discover the way these context variables work, but I believe that the
information is present in the text, and it is already very heavily hyperlinked.
I am reluctant to state the same facts repeatedly, because it always introduces
the danger of inconsistency.

I agree, though, that it would be useful for section 9.5 to be a bit more
explicit about the values of context variables when evaluating global variables
and parameters, and I'll add to the paragraph starting "For a global variable or
the default value of a stylesheet parameter.." the sentence "The values of other
components of the dynamic context are the initial values as defined in [5.4.3]
and [5.4.4]." 

Since this is editorial, I will close the bug in the hope that this resolution
is satisfactory; please reopen it if not.
