The test is to highlight that (for reasons unknown to me) the XPath definition
here is different from the XSD definition.

5.6.1.1 says: If the s flag is not specified, the meta-character . matches any
character except a newline (#x0A) character.

We can pursue this as a spec bug if you wish. One could argue that it
contradicts the statement in 5.6:

"The regular expression syntax and semantics are identical to those defined in
[XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition] with the following additions:"

and that 5.6.1.1 is not trying (or should not try) to be normative about what
happens in the absence of any flags.
