           Summary: [XSLT 2.1] Add select attribute to xsl:copy
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.1
        AssignedTo: mike@saxonica.com
        ReportedBy: mike@saxonica.com

Sample code in the 2.1 draft (the parent-copy() function) illustrates the
awkwardness that arises when trying to do a shallow copy of a node that is not
the context node. Most XSLT instructions and XPath operators/functions now
allow the operand to be selected explicitly rather than working only on the
context node. xsl:copy is an exception. It should have a select attribute for
consistency with other instructions.
