If you don't supply a value, $foo will indeed be the empty sequence.When sending a parameter to the stylesheet( from command line with saxon for example), I thought it was always a string (which is a pitty when you need boolean parameter).
I made a simple test, sending "bar" to parameter foo : <xsl:param name="foo"/>
In XSLT 1, that is, indeed, an empty string as you anticipated. In XSLT 2, however, that is the declaration of an empty sequence.
