The "?" in (NCName?) means optional?  The current XSL CR spec does not 
say that the function argument NCName is optional.
Has that been changed? (it seems reasonable)

If so, X="from-parent()" is equivalent to X="from-parent(X)", correct?
(and also inherited-property-value(), from-nearest-specified-value(),
from-table-column() )
