The only cases where the match pattern enables one to do any static type inference is when the match is specifically against a schema type, for example match="schema-element(my:invoice)" In the much more common case where elements are matched by name, for example match="my:invoice" no formal inferencing is possible, because this will match any element called my:invoice whether it conforms to a schema definition of that name or not. However, it is possible in this case to do some tentative inferencing, and generate warning messages of the form "if the input is a valid invoice, this template will produce no output". Michael Kay
