Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed it yet.
It does seem odd the order of the two params is left "implementation
defined". Per the F&O 4.1 example:
Consider a situation in which a user wants to investigate the actual
value passed to a function. Assume that in a particular execution, $v is
an xs:decimal with value 124.84. Writing fn:trace($v, 'the value of $v
is:') will put the strings "124.84" and "the value of $v is" in the
trace data set in implementation defined order.
So the output will either be English
"the value of $v is 124.84"
"124.84 the value of $v is".
