I also wish to convey my thanks and appreciation to all who commented on this thread.

If it were not for Abel coming back a few weeks later after the original discussion,
and subsequent comments by Michael and David, my understanding on the matter would
still be in limbo.

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
