Make 5.7.2 consistent wrt context node

In 5.7.2, we say that the context node for a p:option is an empty
document node. For consistency with other changes, I think we should
say that it's an empty document node for XPath 1.0 implementations and
undefined for XPath 2.0 implementations.

For one thing, that'll catch this error:

  <p:option name="chapter" select="//chapter[1]"/>

which you'd think might be valid, but it isn't.

                                        Be seeing you,
