Try calling the Saxon method 


No guarantees, but this is used almost exclusively for

(a) deciding whether or not a particular condition is an error (e.g. two
attributes with the same name)

(b) deciding whether to generate the XSLT or XQuery error code

Incidentally I have the same problem with my test driver. Because the test
driver is written in XSLT, Saxon thinks it's in XSLT mode and generates XSLT
error codes. I need to fix that by making the language switch more
fine-grained. When I do that, the above trick may no longer be possible...
