The text immediately prior to the sentence you quote is:

For any element in the stylesheet, the effective value of this attribute
determines the value of the default namespace for element and type names in the
static context of any XPath expression contained in an attribute of that
element (including XPath expressions in attribute value templates)....

The effective value of this attribute similarly applies to any of the following
constructs appearing within its scope:

* any unprefixed element name or type name used in a pattern

I can't really see how to make it much clearer. Perhaps the reader's eye is
drawn to the bulleted list, which you then expect to be a complete list of all
the places where xpath-default-namespace is used?
