Yes, this is correct behaviour. Backwards compatibility mode affects the result of certain 1.0 constructs (for example, it causes xsl:value-of to ignore all but the first selected item) but it does not affect the way a 2.0 processor handles 2.0 constructs.

It runs without complaint (although with data that does not exercise
that precise piece of code), is this correct behaviour when running in
backward compatibility mode.
