The insert context for aan <insert/> is described so:

"The insert context is determined:
* if the context attribute is given, it is evaluated using the in-scope  
evaluation context, and the first-item rule is applied;
* otherwise the in-scope evaluation context is used.

If the result is the empty sequence, the insert action has no effect."

<delete/> on the other hand says:

"The delete context is determined: it is set to the in-scope evaluation  
context, possibly overridden by the context attribute if that attribute is  
present. If the result is the empty sequence, the delete action has no  

It sounds like they intend to describe the same thing, but lack of the  
first item rule in the second makes me wonder.

Any advice?
