[Announce] XML:DB XUpdate Use Cases

In trying to help alleviate the under-documented state of XUpdate, I've 
posted a set of use cases that illustrate the basic operations. http://www.
xmldatabases.org/projects/XUpdate-UseCases/  The examples are fairly basic 
still, but I'll include more in depth examples as they become available. 
If you're using XUpdate and have some ideas to contribute please let me 

For those who aren't familiar with it. XML:DB XUpdate[1] is an update 
language for XML documents that allows you to declaratively specify 
document modifications with an XML syntax. It greatly simplifies the 
process of modifying XML documents. The XUpdate project has been pretty 
stagnant for a while and could use some input to move it forward. XUpdate 
is mainly intended to fill the gap for an update language until W3C XQuery 
provides a more widely standardized language at some distant point in the 
future. XUpdate has been around for a little over a year and is 
implemented in Lexus[2], Ozone[3], dbXML[4] and 4Suite[5].
