I am forwarding this to the mailing list for the joint XQuery/XSLT activity since the JSON-to-XML mapping has now found its way into XPath 3.1 and is therefore the joint responsibility of both groups.

However, we have been studying the schema [2] and would like to propose an extension so that EXI can make use of its datatype representations (i.e., represent dateTime values like "2014-02-04T18:50:45" more appropriately [3] than just as String).

This opens for EXI the possibility to use specific type-codecs for certain values. e.g., one can use the base64Binary element to encode binary data instead of xs:string or integer values encoded as integers and not as xs:double et cetera.
