Ahh, but that is the crux of the issue.  Or at least to the extent that it is true that
XQuery is targeted mainly at those who care about data types....

*If* the type system and dependency on WXS / PSVI was layered on top of XPath 2 
/ XQuery "core", and those who don't care about
these things hadn't been kept waiting for years for a Recommendation while the
deeply complex data type issues are sorted out, people such as Simon wouldn't be so
depressed / angry.  Complexity has a cost even for those who  don't use it.
