Default xsl:exclude-result-prefixes #all and #default

The xsl:exclude-result-prefixes #all and #default options are not mentioned in the book, why is that?

Actually there is a mention of #default on page 474, though it's not mentioned in the proforma on page 467. The value #all is indeed not mentioned, as far as I can see. Sorry about that oversight: I'll note it for an erratum.

It's not only missing from the book, as far as I can see neither of these two options are allowed by the schema for XSLT stylesheets.

Yes, I found that the easiest way to fix the schema is to use the xsl:modes type. I downloaded it a while ago I don't remember where, is this schema published somewhere?

I'm wrong on the latter point - the values are explicitly allowed in the schema for stylesheets.

There's a link to the schema from the Rec. But see also Erratum E1 at
