I know that it seems unbelievable, but they *are* legal, exactly
according to the spec: ...

"It is also not an error if a binding established by a local
xsl:variable or xsl:param element shadows another binding established
by another local xsl:variable or xsl:param. "

And in the previous threads Mike Kay explained that according to the
current spec these are legal.

This is exactly how I felt when first encountered this new XSLT 2.0
