4.12.5 Constructor Functions

Norm / rule 1.
[[ AtomicType(Expr) ]]_Expr
    This is gramatically impossible. What you're thinking of is a
    FunctionCall in which the QName (the "function name") is actually the
    name of an atomic type. But (a) there's no AtomicType involved, and
    (b) you can't detect such things syntactically, you have to consult
    the static environment.

    But why bother? Just let it be handled as a FunctionCall (to a
    built-in function).
