B9 copies an attribute list into an element, so it needs to use context 
rather than nodeset.

B11 does a replace attribute.  This should be a setvalue, not an insert. 
Note that B4 already does a "set attribute" (i.e. create if not exist, 
reset value if exists), so B11 is only different if it has the behavior of 
replacing the value of an existing attribute.  The most efficient way to 
do this is with a setvalue whose ref and value have the nodeset and origin 
values in the current appendix.

The title of the appendix will have to change to "Data Mutation Patterns 
with insert, delete and setvalue"

B14 does a move attribute operation, and the element receiving the 
attribute is identified in the nodeset, so again that is supposed to be 
context rather than nodeset.
