The status of '.' as a selector XPath expression is not clearly
spelled out in the REC.  The WG will need to look at this and will
probably issue an erratum.

My own _personal_ take is that a schema containing a key with such a
selector XPath expression is OK, but the element declaration it is
part of will never validate anything.
