I don't recall offering to handle this action item, but here's a stab...

Brian L. raised ISSUE-110 (http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/track/issues/110)
on the definition of "visibly utilizes" being unclear.

I'll propose we add E07 to the errata document as follows:

----
E07 <date> (Clarification)

In section 1.1, the definition of "visibly utilizes" is imprecise in the
discussion of which attribute nodes are used in the determination of prefix
utilization on an element.

The definition should read:

"An element E in a document subset visibly utilizes a namespace declaration,
i.e. a namespace prefix P and bound value V, if E or an attribute node in
the document subset that is also in E's attribute axis has a qualified name
in which P is the namespace prefix. A similar definition applies for an
element E in a document subset that visibly utilizes the default namespace
declaration, which occurs if E has no namespace prefix."
----

XPathers should confirm that the text is precise enough.
