The behaviour you witness is the behaviour described by the

It is not a "problem", it is an issue of what is specified.  What did you 
read in the Recommendation to indicate that it was a problem of implementation?

xsl-editors@w3.org to plead your case with real-world requirements they can 
consider for a future version.
