- Current 2nd Last Call draft:

Thank you for agreeing with my earlier comments. I think an
editorial glitch remains, however.

The wording in the current draft

>descendents of the if element appear in the result infoset. If the

does not seem to make it clear whether the 'expr' attribute itself
appears in the results
infoset. My impression is that you meant the answer to be 'no.' But
it didn't get into
this paragraph in the specification text.
