           Summary: W3C DOM cannot rename a PI
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Update Facility

XQuery Update specifies an update primitive that changes the name of a
processing instruction without changing it's identity. However, implementation
like the one that I've been working that have a data model based on W3C DOM
cannot do this, since W3C DOM does not provide a way to rename a processing
instruction.

Can I suggest that you either allow the processing instruction's identity to
change in this case (and deal with all the possible variable value fix-ups), or
don't allow processing instructions to be renamed at all.
