            Bug ID: 30069
           Summary: [FO31] Error codes for option parameters
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 3.1

  Target Milestone: ---

Rule 6 for the option parameter conventions (ยง1.5) states:

For each named option, the function specification defines a required type for
the option value. The value that is actually supplied in the map is converted
to this required type using the function conversion rules. A type error
[err:XPTY0004] occurs if conversion of the supplied value to the required type
is not possible, or if this conversion delivers a coerced function whose
invocation fails with a type error. A dynamic error occurs if the supplied
value after conversion is not one of the permitted values for the option in
question: the error codes for this error are defined in the specification of
each function.

Now suppose the supplied value is map{"indent", xs:untypedAtomic('2')} (XSLT
3.0 test case xml-to-json-C104).

The second sentence of the rule above ("The value that is actually supplied in
the map is converted to this required type using the function conversion
rules") implies an error FORG0001.

But the third sentence ("A type error [err:XPTY0004] occurs if conversion of
the supplied value to the required type is not possible") implies an error
XPTY0004.

I think that the third sentence was intended as a gloss on the second, and the
second sentence is normative. Suggested rewording:

For each named option, the function specification defines a required type for
the option value. The value that is actually supplied in the map is converted
to this required type using the function conversion rules. This may result in
an error (typically [err:XPTY0004] or [err:FORG0001]) if conversion of the
supplied value to the required type is not possible. A type error
[err:XPTY0004] also occurs if the conversion delivers a coerced function whose
invocation fails with a type error. A dynamic error occurs if the supplied
value after conversion is not one of the permitted values for the option in
question: the error codes for this error are defined in the specification of
each function.
