/ Jeni Tennison <jeni@jenitennison.com> was heard to say:
| In 5.7.1.3 Assigning Values to Options, and 5.7.2 p:parameter Element,
| a reference to the general rules about establishing the XPath context
| (in 2.8) would be useful. Some of the description could then be
| removed.

Right.

| 5.7.3 Option and Parameter Namespace Bindings should be amalgamated
| with the relevant part of 2.8. It would be good to mention the
| possibility of option/parameter values coming from a (configuration)
| document, and to suggest that implementations use the namespaces from
| that document. (In other words, if the select expression actually
| selects a *node*, then the in-scope namespaces from that node should
| be used.)

I think this is an area where we don't really have a clear
understanding of how things are supposed to work.

Could you construct a couple of (reasonably) small examples and
describe how you think the namespace bindings should be computed?

                                        Be seeing you,
