ACTION-1966 - Check editorial note about untypedatomic in 4.3 [search XPath specs]

All,

I had a quick look at what XPath and XSLT say about xs:untypedAtomic.
For example, XPath 2 says: [1]

"An attribute node whose type is unknown (such as might occur in a
schemaless document) is given the type annotation xs:untypedAtomic."

This comes down to the construction of the XPath Data Model (XDM). If
an implementation uses XPath 2, it makes sense of course that the
underlying model follows the XDM rules.

In short I don't think we need to say anything special about it,
because we already say that instances provide an XDM.
