The W3C XML Query WG published the following documents as Last Call WDs 
early last week:

        XQuery Update Facility 1.0

        XQuery Update Facility 1.0 Requirements

        XQuery Update Facility 1.0 Use Cases

The XQuery Update Facility abstract says:

        "This document defines an update facility that extends the XML 
Query language,
        XQuery. The XQuery Update Facility provides expressions that can 
be used to
        make persistent changes to instances of the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 
2.0 Data

The XQuery Update Facility adds 4 new updating expressions to XQuery 1.0; 
insert, replace, rename, and delete. These expressions modify instances of 
the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model (XDM). The XQuery Update Facility 
also adds a non-updating expression, transform, which returns an XDM 
instance that has been created by copying existing XDM instances and then 
modifying them.

The review period for these Last Call WDs ends on Oct. 31, 2007. The 
status section of each document specifies how you can provide comments to 

                                                -- Andrew
