Hi Michael,

The working group agrees that this is a problem and will fix it in the
specification.  For XPath 1.0, the static errors appear to be limited to
expression well-formedness, undefined variable references and undefined function
references as issues with the [context node, position, size] are handled
separately, i.e. their non-availability implies not executing the xpath and
behaving as if empty nodeset were returned.

Please let us know if you have any further concerns about this issue.

Thank you,
John Boyer
