[Bug 1321] Value of Variables and Parameters (temporary trees from atoms)


------- Additional Comments From dholmes@tibco.com  2005-05-10 22:20 -------
   I think that my expectation was that sequence constructor evaluation 
and "coercion" of the resulting sequence into complex content (or simple 
content in other contexts) are conceptually distinct steps.

To be more concrete, I might have made the conceptual leap if the wording had 
been more like

"The content of the variable-binding element is a sequence constructor; a new 
document (referred to as a temporary tree) is constructed with a document node 
having as its children the sequence of nodes that results from evaluating the 
sequence constructor <add>followed by coercion of the constructed sequence to 
complex content according to section 5.7.1.</add>"

A bit of a mouthful, I know.
