All,

Mike Kay has kindly confirmed that @override in XSLT only allows
overriding extension functions (xsl:function-defined or native
extension functions), and not standard functions (such as
format-dateTime()).

He also mentions the following: "I've seen very little usage of it,
perhaps because there isn't a vibrant community of open source XSLT
2.0 implementations. It was intended for the EXSLT scenario where
there's an XSLT implementation of a third-party extension function,
which vendors can replace with a native implementation, and it allows
users to choose which should take precedence."

At this point I am not convinced that we need @override in XForms 2.
