[Bug 29270] New: Adaptive Serialization: omit-xml-declaration


            Bug ID: 29270
           Summary: Adaptive Serialization: omit-xml-declaration
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Serialization 3.1

  Target Milestone: ---

In "10.1 The Influence of Serialization Parameters upon the Adaptive Output
Method", it is written that "Only the item-separator parameter is directly
applicable to the Adaptive output method. All serialization parameters, if set,
will be passed down to the serialization method that is applied to each item in
the supplied sequence."

"5.1.6 XML Output Method: the omit-xml-declaration and standalone Parameters"
states that "The XML output method MUST output an XML declaration if the
omit-xml-declaration parameter has the value no.".

As the XML Output Method is said to be "used" by the adaptive method for
serializing nodes, I am not quite sure if/when an XML declaration is expected
to be output: For every (possibly recursively) serialized node? Only once for
the first node? Or never at all?
