You are right in so far as thet text overrides any doubt concerning the
impossibility of casting to xs:NOTATION. But the summary table could be made
really more useful, more expressive systematic by a very small extension. 

Presently, the "M" stands for four kinds of dependence:
a) on the source value (in all but 3 cases!)
b) on the KIND of the source expression (str-> QN) 
c) on the target type being a subtype (NOT -> NOT)
d) a combination of b) and c) (str -> NOT)

If the table used, besides Y, N and M, special entries for the three special
cases - say, S1, S2, S3 which are explained as special kinds of dependence -
then the table would give indeed a complete picture, all at a glance.

I think the specifications are indispensable reference for expert users. Any
apparent inconsistency - which can only be resolved by judging one information
as more authoritative as another - should be avoided.
