            Bug ID: 24501
           Summary: In General streamability, the maximum cardinality rule
                    is ambiguous
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 3.0

Under 19.8.1 General Rules for Streamability
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt-30/#general-streamability-rules), item 2.d.iii, we
say the following:

"If the posture of o is crawling and C is a function call of a function whose
signature indicates a return type with a maximum cardinality of one (for
example a call on head or exactly-one), then striding and the adjusted sweep of

This rule can only be applicable to built-in functions, or potentially
extension functions of which the processor knows how they can be applied. For
stylesheet functions, passing a node to a function without atomizing it is not

I think it is best if we simply list the group of "functions with cardinality
one" to avoid confusion.
