Please review the re-issued XML Query Requirements document that clearly
states that our work in this area is not done:

"- One query language syntax MUST be convenient for humans to read and
write.

 Status: this requirement has been partially met. XQueryX was last
published in June 2001. This has been captured in issue 152 ( W3C
members only)"

Answers to these questions will depend on how the WG resolves Issue 152
and therefore are not yet available.
