thx for the translation.

no it wasn't, xqueryx is useful because it makes machine manipulation
of xquery (e.g. code writing code) and interesting alternative  and I
wanted to understand if future versions of xquery dont make future
version of xqueryx impossible ... I agree that there were lessons lost
with xquery but as Mike pointed out perhaps the pain is only exp by
impl and spec writers.
