--- Comment #3 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
If the proposal in bug #24510 (to drop group binding variables and revert to
use of current-group() etc) is adopted, then this problem disappears because
use of current-group() and current-grouping-key() within a pattern is already

If we don't go down that route, then I think it would make sense to disallow
these binding variables within patterns, just as we currently disallow the
corresponding functions.

(I think the reason the fucntion calls are disallowed is primarily to do with
template match patterns; we don't want a template to match a node or not
depending on the circumstances. This argument doesn't apply directly to the
group binding variables because they are not in scope for template match
patterns anyway; but similar arguments extend to their use in other patterns,
namely those used on xsl:number and xsl:for-each-group).
