Sure. Just a random example. Write xsl like this:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
<xsl:attribute-set name="simple">
    <xsl:attribute name="attr"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
	<e xsl:use-attribute-sets=" simple "/>

It throws a NullReferenceException in Mono, but works good in MS.NET. 
This is a snippet from

Yes, I saw that you CC to ximian mono, that's why I did not send it once

Ooops. Sure. Class1.exe is in MSFT_Conformance_Tests, and the 
catalog-out.xml is near catalog.xml. My fault.

No, we did not use Xalan conformance tests. We focused on MSFT 
conformance tests, may be this is the problem here. Yesterday I spent 
all day investigating the enum problem, which we discussed in the list, 
so I did not get my hands on your test suite. I got interesting results, 
and I'm going to send them to the list. Then I'll deal with your test 
suite, to find why it does not catch things I fixed.
