[xquery-talk] XQuery 2.0, parallel XQuery execution

may I add
- a template mechanism analogous with XSLT templates

  Currently (in XQuery1) it is possible to write recursive descent
  transformations using typeswitch and functions, but it
  is neither very convenient nor very modular/maintainable.

 Adding this feature to XQuery, together with a group-by,
 would remove its main inferiorities wrt XSLT2.
