Thanks for your comment. The Query working group has discussed your comment and 
we agree with you that the expansion of initial "/" should include a 
trailing "/" unless the initial "/" is the entire path expression. I have 
edited the XPath/XQuery specification accordingly. We view this as an editorial 
correction and not as a substantive change to the language. I have also acted 
on your editorial suggestion to move the sentence-closing period away from the 
expansion of "//".

Since we have implemented your suggestions, I will assume that this issue is 
satisfactorily resolved unless you reply to the contrary.

Best regards,
--Don Chamberlin
