No, it evaluates to a nodeset with one node whose string value matches
QName. That is not the same as evaluating to a string.

Yes, although to be honest I would expect them to happen in this case
(as apparently would implementors of other xslt systems.) but the
subject line of "non compliance" made me look whether it really is non
compliant, and I think it isn't: it's just a loosely worded spec allowing
differing behaviour. The new version 2 spec is more tightly worded so
the behaviour is more clearly defined but this is an xslt1 question.
