Thank you for writing!

Here is a quick personal response...

All W3C specifications are, in general, open for comment; see the Status
section of the document... for XQuery and XSL documents we use bugzilla
to track comments, so that's the best place to file them.  I can enter
this into bugzilla if you like, or you can, in which case you'll get
copied on any response automatically.

I think your interpretation makes sense.  At some point you reach the
edge of what is formally defined and what must be understood in a human
context rather than a mathematical context.
