| The things I think still need to be done are:
| 1. Specify the base URIs of outputs, and provide some mechanisms for base URI
| access and resolution [1]

Yes, we definitely need to address this.

Perhaps p:add-xml-base-attributes and p:make-uris-absolute are sufficient,
but I wonder if we won't also want a p:base-uri() function.

| 2. Better specification of the environment used to evaluate XPath expressions
| (a) in XProc and (b) passed as arguments to the built-in steps. In particular
| (i) context position and size, (ii) variable bindings (iii) namespace bindings.
| 5.7.3 Option and Parameter Namespace Bindings goes part of the way, but doesn't
| describe what happens if the option/parameter gets set from an input document
| (e.g. an attribute value).

I'm working on (i) and (ii). Do you have suggestions for (iii)?
