I agree that it is better not to define something normatively twice, so
if you can get a statement in XPath 2.0 about what its stability 
requirements are, great.  I assume that then you could and would put 
an explicit hot link or citation in XSLT 2.0 referring the reader to 
the normative text in XPath 2.0.

This leaves the problem of the antecedent for "these values".
I still think the third sentence that I cited is ambiguous, meaning 
either "the subset of XPath features that were explicitly called out
in the second sentence is required to be stable during XSLT 
evaluation" or "all values that XPath requires to be stable, both
those listed and those not listed in the second sentence, must
be stable during an entire XSLT execution".  Since you mean the latter,
could you just humor me and change the last sentence to absolutely 
nail this down, even if you personally don't see a problem?
Something like "All values that XPath 2.0 requires to be stable during
an XPath evaluation are required to be stable during an XSLT 2.0 
evaluation."
