I generally agree with your characterization of how XQuery and XSLT will
be / are used, except for this statement. Why do you think XQuerys won't
be parameterized? Given the usefulness of parameterized queries in SQL,
this seems like a natural.

(Although come to think of it, I don't remember parameter markers in
XQuery, but it's been a while since I read the spec...)
