            Bug ID: 29067
           Summary: [xslt 3.0] declared-modes should allow reference to a
                    mode from a used package
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Hardware: PC

            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 3.0

  Target Milestone: ---

Section 3.5.4.1 states:

<quote>
The declared-modes attribute of xsl:package determines whether or not modes
that are referenced within the package must be explicitly declared. If the
value is yes (the default), then it is an error to use a mode name in
xsl:template or xsl:apply-templates, or in the [xsl:]default-mode attribute of
any element, or to use the unnamed mode explicitly or implicitly in these
contexts, unless the package contains an explicit xsl:mode declaration for that
mode. If the value is no, then this is not an error.
</quote>

A superficial reading suggests that you can't write <xsl:apply-templates
mode="M"/> where M is a public mode declared in a used package. That would be
nonsense. The description of XTSE3085 a couple of paragraphs later gets it
right. 

Change "unless the package contains an explicit xsl:mode declaration for that
mode" to "unless the package either contains an explicit xsl:mode declaration
for that mode, or contains a mode with the appropriate symbolic name and
visibility that is exposed by a used package".
