Hmmm.  I see no statement to this effect, or indeed any mention of a 
mandatory requirements document, in http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process-20010719/

A Last Call Working Draft must meet requirements set out in the charter,
(XQuery's is still W3C confidential, I believe) 
and "any accompanying requirements documents" -- presumably meaning that the
requirements document must be finalized by Last Call.

In my experience, a requirements document has the status of a working draft, and
can be changed by a working group as understanding of the circumstances changes.

Not that I labor under the illusion that changing the XQuery requirements is a feasible
option, but it is, strictly speaking, "legal."
