--- Comment #2 from Priscilla Walmsley <pwalmsley@datypic.com> ---
I can sympathize with the challenge of aligning all the names. Maybe you could
get down to two sets of names:

1. The keywords in the Decimal Format Declaration and the attributes of
xsl:decimal-format.  (These are already aligned.)

2. All other uses.  

I see now that there is a 5th set of names in the XSLT 2.0 and 3.0 specs where
it talks about xsl:format-declaration. For example it says "minus-sign
specifies the character used for the minus-symbol"  (with minus-symbol in
italics as if it is an important keyword) I haven't seen "minus-symbol"
anywhere else. 

As silly as it sounds, I think there should probably be a table in the XQuery
spec (in the Decimal Format Declaration section?) that maps the keywords used
in the declaration with the components of the static context.  While it should
be fairly obvious to a reader that "digit" in the Decimal Format Declaration
maps to "digit-sign" (or "optional-digit-sign") in the static context, this is
after all a specification and it should be explicit.
