"XML documents operated on by XPath must conform to the XML Namespaces
Recommendation [XML Names]."

Thanks for looking up the official lines about this (including the follow-ups). And thanks, David, for pointing out that any document can be used, as long as it is processed into an XDM representable tree.

Just to summarize my side-plot, if I may on Justin's thread: certain XML conforming documents cannot be processed the same way, considering they must also conform to XML Namespaces.

Kind regards,
Abel Braaksma
