I would change:

"A processor that does not support this property will return a
zero-length string if the property is requested."

to:

"(A processor that does not support this property will return a
zero-length string if the property is requested, as a consequence of the rules
in section 16.6.5)"

Why not mandate the property if the namespace axis IS supported (so that the
empty string is reliably equivalent to "no")? I believe that Saxon is the only
processor that currently supports it, and since I assume that you (Michael)
will be adding this property, as you have proposed it, there doesn't seem to be
a problem with this.
