p:http-request is underspecified with respect to document properties as headers #369
The spec says:
I think we should say that only document properties in no-namespace are added. Otherwise, what do you do with a document property named
We could say that you use the local name, but then you will always have errors if there are different properties with the same local name.
I wonder, actually, if we should say that only headers in a particular namespace should be copied over. Today we have the situation that implementations are free to add additional properties. So it's difficult for users to predict what properties will exist.
(I just discovered this because I provide additional http properties as document properties, but that means if you copy them blindly across, you can wind up with weird http issues.)
