hmmm.. I think I disagree but this may be due to lack of clarity in the
original example. The original example looked like it may have been nested.
e.g.

     <bind id="b1" nodeset="a/b">
         <bind id="b2" nodeset="a" relevant="false">
     </bind>

There was no explicit end element for the b1 bind in the original example
but assuming b2 was supposed to be nested within b1, the b2 nodeset
expression would be evaluated in the context "a/b". i.e. the b2 nodeset
would be expanded as "a/b/a", and not "*/a". In this case, the input would
be bound to node 3 and the relevant would be associated with node 3, not
node 1.

This last nodeset binds to node /*/a, that is to say none in your instance.

They are bound to another node, /*/a.

However, if you instance was like this:
<myroot>
	<a> (node 1)
		<b> (node 2)
			<a/> (node 3)
		</b>
	</a>
</myroot>
The input would be bound to node 1, and the relevant would apply to node 
1 also.

Jérôme
