Actually, I don't think the words in 5.1 allowed it even in the
p:input case. That's clearly an editorial oversight. I fixed the
problem this way:

  It is a dynamic error (err:XD0016) if the select expression on a
  p:input returns atomic values or anything other than element or
  document nodes (or an empty sequence).

Please let us know if you are not satisified with this resolution.
