            Bug ID: 28896
           Summary: [xp3.1] EQName definition
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2

In section 2 Basics, third bullet under production [118], we read:

In this case the local name and namespace URI are as written, and the prefix is
absent. This way of writing a QName is context-free, which makes it
particularly suitable for use in queries|expressions that are generated by
software. This form is a .

The last sentence is unfinished.

Also, this paragraph fails to explain that if there is nothing between the
curly braces, e.g. Q{}local, then the namespace URI is absent.

Also, I suspect that "queries|expressions" should be "queries" in XQuery and
"expressions" in XPath.

Just above production [112] appears "In the XQuery|XPath grammar" which is
probably the same problem.
