Description Frans Englich 2005-08-03 14:57:40 UTC

In in the last bullet point ofsection " Axes", "XML Path Language (XPath)
2.0" there is a reference to the accessor "dm:namespaces", but from my reading,
there is no such accessor defined in "XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model".
Similarly, in section "2.1 Terminology" of "XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model"
there is also a reference to dm:namespaces, and naturally without a hyper link,
contrasting the other two references to accessors in that sentence.
I guess dm:namespaces was renamed to dm:namespace-bindings or dm:namespace-nodes
in earlier drafts, and that a couple of updates remains. It should probably also
be checked whether other specs need to be updated(at least not F & O, from what
I can tell).
I bet this bug have been reported before, but I couldn't find it in the bug
