The text you are quoting was introduced by erratum XT.E37 (as mentioned in comment 6 of the bugzilla entry). But this was subsequently found to have problems (sadly the discussion moves to the member-only bug entry 937), and in consequence, I reverted the change in Saxon, which now behaves as described in the original 2007 version of the spec.
At the time of writing, the WG doesn't have a solution to this problem that gives satisfactory behaviour in all cases.
