The following paragraph in section 9.3.8 should be removed:

The binding expression attached to the repeating sequence returns a 
node-set of the collection being populated, not an individual node. Within 
the body of element repeat, binding expressions are evaluated with a 
context node of the node determined by the index. Repeat processing uses 
XPath expressions to address the collection over which element repeat 
operates.

The first and third sentences are obvious given other material in Section 
9, and the second sentence is old and wrong, contradicting the copious 
material in Section 7.4 on evaluation context (see esp. point 2c and 2d in 
7.4).
