Section 3.9.3 of the XQuery document, which makes reference to the fn:compare 
function and is therefore covered by definitions in the F&O document. A long 
and contentious thread on various W3C lists has established that relative 
namespace URIs have no meaning, and therefore our documents do not discuss
