practically, because it would play merry hell
with validation and processing. A simple
thing like <xsl:number level="any"/> for processing <note>
will meet the <note> inside the examples. It
may sound lazy, but when we set this up
I couldnt see any other way forward. Its trying
to make it very clear that this is an island
of oddity where normal rules do not apply.
Maybe we were being short-sighted? does
anyone else remember?
