Probably it is safer to wait until XML Schema 1.1 *do* this change.
Then XProc could be updated to take this new feature into account

This is different from the [Serialization] specification which uses "yes" and "no". No change in semantics is implied by this different spelling.
> Why not allow "yes" and "no" as well? Since there already are 2 truthy and falsy values, this wouldn't cost much, and a gratuituous deviation from the referenced standard [Serialization] would be avoided. BTW, currently developed XML Schema 1.1 probably should also make an analoguous change.
