When I came to implement the change you requested to the
fourth point in Appendix B:

 5. The second sentence of the fourth reporting requirement
    under "Appendix B" appears to be superfluous [...]

    There is no implication or other indirect language here;
    the recommendation clearly states that it is the
    normalized values that are passed to the application.

I realised what the original intention must have been.  The language
is indirect in that this is the only place in the XML spec where it is
specified that attribute values are reported *at all*.  That is, the
fact that they must be normalized before returning them implies that
they must be returned.

I will remove the sentence anyway because I think it is more likely to
confuse than clarify.
