Yet about scenarios..

I think serialization (Result sequence to XML) time
should be separated, or such scenarios is required.

Because some user programs (that uses XQuery) 
may not require bulk/entire result at a time.

XQuery query results tends to be redundant/fat than 
relational's obviously, so something like DB cursor feature 
is required for large documents handling, just my opinion.

Sequence items might be lazily generated in some impl.
