I'm checking the bugzilla database, not the document.  They mostly
accepted our comments.  I'd like to raise two points:


I'm still a little unclear about the relationship between XSL/Query
datatypes and schema datatypes.  The resolution says that "All
primitive atomic types, such as xs:integer and xs:string, have
xdt:anyAtomicType as their base type." which is not true in XML Schema.


They're adding a note to the XPath backwards compatibility appendix
(appendix to what?) noting the incompatibility when there is a DTD,
but this still seems like a big change: for example, identity
transformations will now strip element-content whitespace.  And I
still don't see why they are not describing it in terms of [element
content whitespace].
