Dear WG,

The XProc CR says:
> In order to be consistent with the rest of this specification, boolean values for the serialization parameters must use one of the XML Schema lexical forms for boolean: "true", "false", "1", or "0". This is different from the [Serialization] specification which uses "yes" and "no". No change in semantics is implied by this different spelling.
Why not allow "yes" and "no" as well? Since there already are 2 truthy and falsy values, this wouldn't cost much, and a gratuituous deviation from the referenced standard [Serialization] would be avoided. BTW, currently developed XML Schema 1.1 probably should also make an analoguous change.
