This was discussed on Shrove Tuesday, 5 February 2008. I was actioned to
propose wording that reflected a sentiment to make <a><b/></a> behave in the
same way as <a>{<b/>}</a>. It is believed that if we make this change in the
XQuery language book, no changes will be needed to XQueryX or to the formal
semantics.

I believe the change can be implemented fairly easily. Specifically, in section
3.7.1.3, change clause 1.d to read in its entirety:

d. Each nested direct constructor is evaluated as if it appeared in an enclosed
expression. For example, <a><b/><b/></a> is evaluated as if it were written
<a>{<b/>}{<b/>}</a>.

(I withdraw my earlier opinion that this change is inappropriate for an
erratum. The various specifications are in conflict and this is the simplest
way to bring them into alignment.)
