Shouldn't we make format a QName and say that an implementation may add values outside the default namespace, for both parse and serialize. And maybe say that currently all other supported values the xml are implementation defined?

Kind regards,

This was a Category:XForms20 feature: http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Parse_and_serialize_functions

It was suggested to make it compatible with XPath 3.0 parse-xml(),  The result is compatible, not identical. Differences are explained in an editor note, which will be fodder for discussion.
