I think it could be valuable for us (W3C WG?) to come up with a coding
standards for XQuery, so that when we look at XQuery code its all
formatted the same.

i.e. Where should braces go?

declare local:function($a, $b) {


declare local:function($a, $b)

i.e. Where should return statements go?

let $x = $y return


let $x = $y

I think you get the idea...
