           Summary: [XSLT] Definition of XTSE0680
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.1
        AssignedTo: mike@saxonica.com
        ReportedBy: oliver@cbcl.co.uk

This also affects XSLT 2.0

The working draft specifies this:

ERR XTSE0680
In the case of xsl:call-template, it is a static error to pass a non-tunnel
parameter named x to a template that does not have a template parameter named
x, unless the xsl:call-template instruction is processed with XSLT 1.0
behavior.

The upshot of this is that it is an error to pass a non-tunnel parameter to a
template which doesn't declare this non-tunnel parameter UNLESS it happens to
declare a tunnel parameter with the same name (in which case the parameter
passed is silently ignored.

This interpretation of the spec is confirmed by the test tunnelparam20_015_01.

Was it really the intention of the working group that the error should be
ignored in this case or is it an oversight?  I cannot see how this behaviour is
at all beneficial, and can only lead to confusion.

I suggest that the wording should be changed to:

ERR XTSE0680
In the case of xsl:call-template, it is a static error to pass a non-tunnel
parameter named x to a template that does not have a non-tunnel template
parameter named x, unless the xsl:call-template instruction is processed with
XSLT 1.0 behavior.
