We have a statement in section 2.9 which seems surprising in the light of
recent decisions:

As with other aspects of serialization, the handling of serialization errors
is implementation-defined: see 20 Serialization.

Similarly, section 20 starts out:

Stylesheet authors can use the xsl:output declaration to specify how they
wish result trees to be serialized. If a processor serializes a final result
tree, it *should* do so as specified by these elements; however, it is not
*required* to do so.

(Concerning handling of serialization errors, section 20 passes the buck
back to section 2.9)

We may want to review whether we intended to be a bit more
prescriptive.
