In section 2.8 (Stylesheets and XML Schemas) of the XSLT 2.0 spec, the 
distinction of a "basic XSLT processor" and "Schema Aware XSLT processor" is 
not clear. The distinction is described as (it seems to me..) -
A stylesheet that works with a basic XSLT processor will work unchanged with a 
schema-aware XSLT processor, unless the type information created as a result 
of schema processing introduces type errors (for example, an attribute of type 
xs:date cannot be used as an argument of the substringFO function), or unless 
the type information changes the outcome of operations such as comparison and 

This appears quite confusing .. I think it should be a bit more clear ...
