    From the list of changes :

It is now a recoverable error to generate nodes in the result tree
using a namespace name that is not a valid instance of xs:anyURI. XSLT
1.0 explicitly stated that this was not an error; however, the XPath
2.0 data model assumes that the name of a node is a valid xs:QName,
and the namespace part of a valid xs:QName, if present, must be a
valid xs:anyURI. The fact that this error is recoverable, however,
gives implementations freedom to avoid strict validation of namespace
names if they wish to do so.

    May I ask why this change was made? Not that I'm inconvenienced by
this - it just seems like an odd thing to explicitly change.
