We have had many discussions on this topic. The semantics of / does duplicate 
node elimination and document ordering, which is probably not what you want 
for atomic values. Since XQuery allows heterogeneous sequences of values and 
nodes, the question becomes what the semantics should be. The WG felt that 
this was not needed in v1 and I personally do not see a reason to revisit this 
if we want to ship XQuery in time.
