itis implied by the constraints (or lack of them) on the xml
linearisation.

No the axis beinga forward axis just affects the way position(0 etc
work on the input tree, it doesn't imply anything about teh resulttree.

The foo element will have namesapce nodes relating to the foo namespace

Are these equivalent?
yes, as when parsing this back in the xpath data nmodel all namespace
nodes are repeated on all descendent elements.

The order is machine specific in eithercase.
