arguing on this mailing list is not a very productive way of spending  
the time.

If there is a technique that you think XQuery should really adopt,  
and you really
care about it, the best way to proceed is to write a proposal, and  
send it to W3C as
a technical note. I am sure it will be considered with attention.

Best regards,
