           Summary: [XSLT 2.0] xsl:copy when there is no context item
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.0

There is no explicit statement in the spec that it is an error to use xsl:copy
when there is no context item.

Clearly this should be an error. The question is, what error? In many cases the
error can be detected statically, though in a few cases this may not be
possible (e.g. within a named template). xsl:number handles this by making it a
type error (XTTE0990). Oddly, however, using select="." when there is no
context item is a dynamic error rather than a type error (XPDY0002).

Pending a decision on this, I am creating a test case (copy903err) in which the
expected error code is the new code XTTE0945.
