The current draft does not state how xsl:key declarations behave with
respect to the import mechanism.  This needs to be clarified.  Are
xsl:key declarations subject to the same precedence mechanism as
templates?  Probably not, since it is clearly the intention of section
13.2 that all keys that match a node should apply, unlike for
templates where there should be only one.

It should be made clear that all key declarations apply equally,
regardless of how they were obtained, through inclusion, importing, or
not.

Sincerely,
