the feasibility I cannot judge, but I think this is an excellent idea. And it
seems to me that it is an instance of a general, yet hardly explored (?)
principle: to create transformations not literally, but by some sort of
specification of what the result of the transformation shall be. In this case:
using an update query. Other approaches are conceivable, too, and I believe in

I didn't think too much about it yet, but would it be somehow possible for an
XQuery processor (at least in theory) to take an XQUpdate query and
automatically transform it to a number of transform functions that return copies
of modified documents which are changed in the way the original documents would
be changed by an XQUpdate query in question?
What are the major problems here?
Thanks in advance!
