I think this requirement will keep coming up. It's frankly embarrassing that
in XProc, queries have to be escaped as CDATA. If we solved this problem,
all sorts of opportunities would open up - XQuery used for assertions in
XSD, XSD schemas embedded in XQuery modules, XQuery embedded in XSLT, XSLT
embedded in XQuery, XQuery embedded in XForms.
