9.3.5 uses the terms index/location/position almost interchangeably and 
sometimes refers to a collection, sometimes a node-set. More consistency in 
terminology would be advantageous.

I don't see it stated whether "index" is zero-start or one-start. I assume it 
is the latter but that should be stated.

In addition the use of the "position" attribute to mean something quite 
different from position in XPath 1.0 at the same time as index is being used 
to mean something very similar to position is potentially unnecessarily 
confusing.

Why is what is presently termed the "position" attribute not optional with a 
default behaviour specified?
