           Summary: [UPD] Revalidation mode limits
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Update Facility

In section 2.2, the XQuery Update specification states that the revalidation
mode can be overwritten by a query -

  "but a revalidation declaration may not specify a mode that is less strict
than the implementation-defined default."

I understand that this addresses the needs of such systems that require their
data to conform to a schema. However, this doesn't address systems where either
validation is not supported (it is an optional XQuery feature), or the data
model does not support PSVI. In these cases, the implementation would not want
the revalidation mode to be set /more strict/ than the implementation defined
default.

I think that the specification should be rewritten to state that support for
each revalidation mode is implementation defined.
