One of the XML Query WG members is concerned about the default revalidation
mode. I'll copy, in part, this person's comment:


XQuery Update specifies that the default revalidation mode is "strict".
Although this is implementation defined, I have two observations to make:

1) This has confused quite a few users who don't understand why they are
getting revalidation errors about not being able to find a schema element.

2) The XQuery Update Test Suite doesn't pass without a default revalidation
mode of "lax".

Given that the experience we have with writing update queries suggests that
"strict" is an unhelpful default value for revalidation mode, do we want to
change the default mode to "lax"?
