Anne van Kesteren scripsit:

> If it is inside JavaScript it is not a new scripting language.

>From the viewpoint of a browser implementor, it is not.  From the
viewpoint of a page author, it is; except for adding a single line to
a page containing an XQuery script, the author doesn't need to care if
XQuery is implemented natively in the browser or via JavaScript.  From the
viewpoint of a computer, it's all just assembly-language instructions.
