[Bug 6844] New: [FO] Incorrect description of dm:base-uri in fn:base-uri


           Summary: [FO] Incorrect description of dm:base-uri in fn:base-uri
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Functions and Operators

Some colleagues and I noticed a minor inconsistency in the description of the
dm:base-uri accessor that appears in the definition of fn:base-uri with the
actual definition of the accessor in the Data Model Recommendation.

Section 2.5.4 of the F&O PER [1] states:  "Returns the value of the base-uri
URI property for $arg as defined by the accessor function dm:base-uri() for
that kind of node....  Document, element and processing-instruction nodes have
a base-uri property which may be empty. The base-uri property of all other node
types is the empty sequence."  However, according to sections 6.3.2, 6.6.2 and
6.7.2 of the Data Model PER,[2,3,4] the value of the dm:base-uri accessor for
attribute, comment and text nodes is not necessarily the empty sequence.
