Like performing normalization on it? That's interesting -- I wouldn't
have expected that behavior; I would have expected copy-of to produce a
literal copy with no additions.

Note below that a DTD supplements the information set with defaulted attributes. This is the behaviour I am looking for from a W3C Schema-aware XSLT 2 processor ... so I need an XSLT 2 processor that acts on the PSVI of a document, not the XML information set of a document.
