            Bug ID: 24310
           Summary: Importing or including xsl:package
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 3.0
          Assignee: mike@saxonica.com
          Reporter: abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl

It seems that we are not explicit enough about whether we can or cannot use
xsl:include or xsl:import to import a stylesheet that has xsl:package as its

The spec says:

"The referenced stylesheet module may be any of the four kinds of stylesheet
module: that is, it may be standalone or embedded, and it may be standard or
simplified. If it is a simplified stylesheet module then it is transformed into
the equivalent standard stylesheet module by applying the transformation
described in 3.9 Simplified Stylesheet Modules."[1]

While in essence this seems to exclude stylesheets that are packages, the
stylesheet inside a package is considered a "embedded standard stylesheet
module"[2] and a referenced stylesheet can also be an embedded standard
stylesheet module.

Since locating stylesheet modules is largely implementation dependent, I think
it is fair that we be explicit about this. I.e., either explicitly forbid
(unless with an xpointer ref), explicitly make it implemention-dependent, or
explicitly allow a referenced stylesheet module, in which case we should define
whether the xsl:package declarations and the stylesheet, or only the embedded
stylesheet is referenced.
