bug #3472 has the surprising comment

Note that the F&O also defines a URL for the codepoint collation and there was
no discission of this URL.  In the current document it is
http://www.w3.org/2006/xpath-functions/collation/codepoint.  If anyone thinks
this, too should be frozen to 2005, please raise a new issue.

Surely this should be frozen, to the same ...2005.. form as all the other URIs.
Changing the URIs every draft caused terrible problems for users introducing
needless incompatibilities between systems as updates happened.
It was a great relief when it was finally agreed to stop doing this at the CR
drafts.

I can't see any possible benefits in not freezing this URI and had always
assumed it was just a simple typo in the last draft of F&O that had the
function and collation URIS with a 2006. I'm amazed that there be a suggestion
that there has to be an issue raised to have this fixed, but since you ask for
such an issue to be raised, I'm raising this new issue.
