Actually, in the case of Saxon, it's not a bug: it was a conscious decision
to treat this as an oversight in the spec. I disallowed it at one stage, and
got a stream of bug reports, and decided that no useful purpose was served
by rejecting these stylesheets. You might disagree with the decision, but
the code is doing what it was designed to do.
