If you make it look too much like xslt then essentially it is XSLT
since it's the same programming model, with (then) the same syntax.
This is explictly what xq2xml did

But I agree it would be good to aim for something with xslt inspired xml
syntax for top level declarations, but using xquery (rather than xslt)
inspired syntax for expressions (so you can go <a><b/></a>/b with
element constructors and path expressions mixed)
