           Summary: [XQ1.1] Use of "none" for default element/function
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

A number of places in the specification refer to the default element and
function namespace being set to "none" being equivalent to it being undefined.

However the string "none" is probably a valid value for these components
(depending how you handle URI values), and you could go so far as to argue that
"<e/>" should evaluate to "<e xmlns="none" />"!

This should probably be the value none without quotes around it.  It might just
be better to define this as being set to the empty namespace, rather than none.
