Calabash error with p:unwrap? Unwrapping the input's root element doesn't generate an error

Hi Folks,

This p:unwrap step unwraps the root element (BookStore) and thus outputs a sequence:

<p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc" name="myPipeline">
    <p:input port="source">
        <p:document href="Bookstore.xml"/>
    </p:input>
    <p:output port="result" />
    
    <p:unwrap match="/BookStore" />
    
</p:declare-step>

When I run this using Calabash 0.9.9 I don't get an error message. I believe that I should get an error, right?  Here's what the specification says:

    This step produces a single document; 
    if the document element is unwrapped, 
    the result might not be well-formed XML.
