Hi Nick,

Yes, I agree, but there is already an editor note indicating that we need 
further consideration of how much control over serialization we want to 
add, including the suggestion that we want to consider relevance pruning 
as a value-add over xpath 3.0's serialize() but also all the other options 
characterized by various attributes of XForms submission, such as the XML 
Decl.

So, that editor note/this email should become an agenda item for a future 
telecon.

Hi John, 

I was making another pass through the expression module and while 
re-reading your editorial notes, I wondered if the XML declaration is 
serialized. don't we need the same parameters as on the submission to 
specify the output parameters.

Kind regards,

Initial draft of xf:serialize() appears here:

This was a Category:XForms20 feature: 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Parse_and_serialize_functions 

It was suggested to make it compatible with XPath 3.0 serialize(),  The 
result is compatible, but not identical. It is intended to be parallel to 
the parse() function and parallel to XForms submission, including 
serialization to non-XML formats.  The differences are explained in an 
editor note, which will be fodder for discussion.
