	Is util:eval the function that you are looking for?
	let $i := "<b><a>1</a></b>"
	return util:eval($i)
It looks like a close approximation. But not every well-formed XML document
is a valid Query, and some well formed documents if interpreted as a query
don't give you the data model you expected. For example:

<a>{apple orange pear}</a>

is a legal XML document but not a legal query.
