yes, so it's schema valid:-)

> You are doing this correctly. 
Ah OK thanks for the confirmation. I hadn't noticed that previously.

Actually each time I've released a new version of my test results I've always
tried to take care to flag this as something I'm _not_ doing correctly. So I
can stop doing that now. I will however keep my current practice of commenting
the tests where I get "incorrect" codes. The development version of xq2xsl is
actually a lot better at getting the codes right but there are still a couple
of thousand or so cases where I get the wrong code (usually because the W3C
XQuery parser doesn't distinguish errors with codes, or because I can't trap
underlying XSLT errors, so XSLT rather than XQuery codes are reported).
Probably other implementors will have similar issues with codes so I agree
classing "wrong error code" as "fail" would be a bit severe. However it may be
worth having a different classification other than pass such as
"pass-up-to-error-code" (probably with a shorter name) so that you can more
easily see which systems are using the W3C specified error codes and which are
not, even if you treat pass and pass-up-to-error-code as equivalent for the
purpose of the CR implementability testing.
