  Best would be to check the spec...
I would infer from 11.4 that without the declaration, the parameter
should not be in scope to the stylesheet and the reference to it should
fail. Seems you're right, please fill a bugzilla entry. It's also likely
to break existing code relying on that bug unfortunately.
