            Bug ID: 26308
           Summary: [xslt 3.0] true|false as synonymns for yes|no

In response to email discussion the XSL WG yesterday accepted a proposal to
allow the values true|false and 1|0 as synonymns for yes|no in XSLT attributes
that accept yes|no values.

There are two rationales for this:

(a) to allow boolean values to be used in AVTs and shadow attributes, for

<xsl:param name="terminate" as="xs:boolean"/>
<xsl:message terminate="{$terminate}"/>

<xsl:param name="streamable" as="xs:boolean" static="yes"/>
<xsl:mode _streamable="{$streamable}"/>

(b) consistency with XML Schema
