           Summary: Contradictory statements for casting from xs:QName to
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

The Casting table in section 17.1 allows casting xs:QName to itself, but in
section 17.1.1, one can read:

"A static error is raised [err:XPST0083]XP if the argument to a cast for
xs:QName or a type derived from xs:QName or xs:NOTATION is not an xs:string

Hence, the latter disallows casting from xs:QName, since xs:QName is not a
xs:string literal. I think it makes sense and should be allowed to cast from
xs:QName to xs:QName, and hence that the latter clause should be loosened to
allow casting from an xs:string literal or xs:QName.

This bug is similar to "[Bug 1515] Contradictory statement: casting to
xs:notation permitted/allowed", http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=1515
