If you put it as a general statement in the preliminaries, then it would 
something like "[x/y] refers to something that is called 'x' in [XPath] 
and called 'y' in [XQuery]."  However, [expression/query] is not 
actually called "expression" in either specification; it is called Expr
in both, though I see XPath has XPath ::= Expr and XQuery has 
QueryBody ::= Expr.  Similarly [For/FLWOR] is not actually called For or
FLWOR.  So there is no syntactic transform from [x/y] to its referents.
This good be arranged, but it is probably simpler to just supply a 
definition whenever one of these symbols is introduced.
