Since there's many instances of alternative behaviour defined in the
XSLT Recommendation, just "YES" or "NO" doesn't give you enough
information to know when to include the test and when not to include

Perhaps an early activity should be to find where alternative
behaviour is allowed and identify each of the alternatives?  We will
then have names for some of the information that goes into the markup
and/or data in the catalogue instances and rendition control
