XPATH, to be pedantic.

It's not exactly the same thing in that leading / trailing space in
content can be significant (at least if you consider it to apply to text
child nodes of <t>). For instance,

   <t>see <xref target="foo"/></t>

is not equivalent to

   <t>see<xref target="foo"/></t>

At this point I'm not sure anymore what we're discussing here.

If your point is that RFC 7991bis should be clearer about what XML calls
the "default whitespace handling mode", I agree.

Best regards, Julian
