A.1.1 grammar-note: occurrence-indicators

[See a later comment for suggested alternate wording.]

"Any occurrence of '+' and '*', as well as '?', following a sequence type is
assumed to be an occurrence indicator."
    Even when the only possible derivation says it's not an occurrence
    indicator?  So in
        4 treat as item() + 5
    the '+' is assumed to be an occurrence indicator, which would then lead to a
    syntax error? Probably yes, but might be good to say so.
