Ok. So there is no specification at all defining what means
the lack of the media pseudo-attribute on the xml-stylesheet
PI and that behaviour is then, at this time, totally undefined
in ALL current browsers. This is a severe architectural problem
that, again, cannot be solved on the CSS side since your spec
leaves it in the hands of the xml dialect.

Quoting the document:

   This second edition incorporates all known errata as of the
   publication date, clarifies several areas left unspecified in the
   earlier edition.

I am therefore raising an objection on this point since it does not
clarify this area left unspecified.

The WG's response on the scoped stylesheet issue is not
satisfactory since, again from an architectural point of
view, this spec will be inconsistent with the forthcoming HTML5
state of art.
