The way the request was put to me, it was a general query that was not
particularly targeted to XML documents. I appreciate the reply.

Subject: Re: [xml-dev] Query Format in XML
I suspect that you are already aware of XQueryX, one of the
published as part of the XQuery/XPath suite of documents. XQueryX is an
XML syntax for XQuery, making it generatable and manipulatable like XSLT
is. In fairness, I must point out that XQueryX is an XML syntax that
closely echoes the BNF parse tree for XQuery.
Is this the sort of thing you wanted to find?
I suspect that some future version of XQueryX will include an XML syntax
that is more closely related to the semantic concepts of XQuery instead
merely the syntactic ones.
Hope this helps,
