Yes, I don't like the "initially" - I've generally tried to avoid words
in the spec that have a temporal connotation.

What it means is that you are allowed to write things like

   <xsl:for-each select="$param">

and inside the for-each (or inside a predicate in a filter expression)
the context item is well defined.
