This is a personal response, not on behalf of the XSL and XQuery working
groups.

Thank you for your comment.  I agree that the text is ambiguous.  Clearly the
only useful result for the purposes of the normalization-form parameter would
be one in which the serialized result is in the specified normalization form.

I propose that section 2 of the specification [1] should be revised to add an
eighth step to sequence normalization that applies only in the case of the text
output method.  In that step a new document node with a single text node child
would be created, where the string value of the result of the seventh step
would be the string value of the new text node.  Then the first paragraph of
section 8 [2] could be revised to remove the words, "by outputting the string
value of the document node"
