I've added the following suggestion to the Bugzilla entry:

I've looked up the XQuery Serialization Spec.: Step 3 in Section 2,
"Sequence Normalization", contains the sub-sentence "separated by a
single space" [1], which would probably have to be extended to take an
additional serialization parameter into account. An XQuery 3.0
expression that uses the parameter could e.g. look as follows:

  declare option output:separator "
  (1 to 10)

Opinions are welcome.
