Hear, hear - we abandoned using xquery for transformations as well for
When I was still struggling with that, I found myself trying to write a
pattern-matching system (basically something like xslt implemented in
xquery), but it was too difficult in XQuery 1.0.
Now I wonder whether something like this is feasible using xquery 3.0
features. Maybe not worth the effort, given the existence of xslt, but
at least you could imagine defining a map of XPath to function,
iterating over a tree, matching patterns and calling functions...
