--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
I think the intended behaviour is:

* you request a processor that is an implementation of a specific version of
XSLT using the xslt-version option, which defaults to the version attribute of
the top-level stylesheet module/package. Let's say the version you request is

* the system gives you a processor that supports that version or a higher
version, say W.

* the processor then goes into forwards or backwards compatibility mode based
on the rules of XSLT version W, for example if W = 3.0 and the stylesheet
specifies version = 1.0 then it goes into backwards compatibility mode; if W =
2.0 and the stylesheet specifies version 3.0 then it goes into forwards
compatibility mode.

I agree that this could usefully be clarified in the spec. (I think that this
is essentially editorial)
