           Summary: xsl:xpath-default-namespace should apply to expressions,
                    not only patterns
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.0
        AssignedTo: mike@saxonica.com
        ReportedBy: frans.englich@telia.com

Section 5.2 Unprefixed QNames in Expressions and Patterns says that
xpath-default-namespace applies to, among other things, "any unprefixed element
name or type name used in a pattern".

However, I think it also should apply to any XPath expession, such as found in
xsl:sequence/@select. For instance, I think this:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0">

    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:sequence xpath-default-namespace="TEST" select="e"/>
    </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

should match on the input document <e xmlns="TEST"/>. I think that would be
inline with what the spec intended(e.g, consider the name of the attribute),
and how people expect it to function.

Maybe I have missed something, but perhaps an editorial change in the direction
of turning "any unprefixed element name or type name used in a pattern" into
"any unprefixed element name or type name used in a pattern or expression",
would be useful.
