--- Comment #2 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
I have introduced "predicate pattern" and "selection pattern" as defined terms
for the two kinds of pattern; these now partition the space.

Concerning the last para of the bug report, the note in 5.6.3 has this
information: "A predicate with the numeric value 1 (one) always matches, and a
predicate with any other numeric value never matches. Numeric predicates in a
PredicatePattern are therefore not useful, but are defined this way in the
interests of consistency with XPath."
