[XPath/XQuery] syntax of variable reference

In the syntax, "$" VarName turns up in various places.
This should be replaced by a non-terminal, e.g. VarRef,
which would be defined as:

    VarRef ::= "$" VarName

Also, the syntax seems to allow a space after the $, but
none of the examples have a space after the $. The above
rule would allow to forbid whitespace with a /* ws: explicit */.
There seems to be no need to allow whitespace after the $,
it will only confuse users.

Regards,   Martin.
