Section 3.13 Validate Expressions	

We consider the validate expression (and the implicit validation on
element construction) to be too complex and potentially confusing to
users for the following reasons: 
- Validate will validate against all ISSD. Most usecases we come across,
users want to validate against a specific output schema. Since that can
be done outside of the XQuery statement, the validate expression becomes
less useful.
- The schema context part of validate is pretty complex and most users
will not understand it at the beginning. This looks like a good vNext or
optional feature.

Thus we would like to propose:
1. Make default validation mode to be skip
2. Remove Schema context from the spec
3. Make support for validation modes lax and strict and the validate
keyword an optional feature.
