The working group agreed to the removal of the paragraph.

> 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).
