How is one supposed to determine what the defaults for attributes in
the XSLT2 specs is?  For example (one which is at issue for XProc),
what is the default for the omit-xml-declaration attribute on the
xsl:output element?  That is, how is a serialiaser supposed to
implement e.g. section 5.1.5 of the Serialization spec. if no value is
specified?

Thanks,
