Yupp, making fn:put an updating expression has been suggested a couple of
times, and its low amount of specification has been pointed out too:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5314

Don's summary in 5314 isn't very useful in my opinion, essentially stating that
things are as they are because they were written as so, not detailing the
reasoning behind it.

Leaving conflict analysis(or just in general having fn:put() an update
operation and hence within the "update framework") implementation defined has
negative impacts on interoperability, so the advantages it brings must be
strong and clear to outweight it. Currently I don't see how conflict analysis
would constrain implementers, but rather that it would make the language more
predictable for users.
