Under section 26 Serialization, the item on "item-separator" says the

To set the parameter to absent, the item-separator attribute can either be
omitted, or set to the special value item-separator="#absent"; it is not
possible to set the value of the serialization parameter to the literal
7-character string "#absent"

The last part of the sentence (after the ";") contradicts the previous part. We
say it can be set to "#absent" and then we say it cannot be set to that value.
Which is it? ;)

I'd assume "#absent" is a valid value.

I noticed also that the syntax for xsl:output and xsl:result-document do not
mention the "#absent", I think it makes sense to add it there:

item-separator? = "#absent" | string
