Thanks for the qualification, Mike.

Case is at the moment I happen to be writing an XQuery Update Facility -
compatible/emulation layer for an existing XML database product which has
XQuery-only capability but is unlikely to have XQuery Update built into it for
quite some time.

So the reason I happened across the issue is that I consulted the Candidate
Recommendation only a few hours ago for this very function, so as to understand
the functionality required and to copy the signature for my XQuery Update
emulator function of the same name (in my emulator namespace).

Then I said to myself, "bugger", I have to check for empty attribute sequence
before I can call this one :-)

Given that expert advice is "...so it doesn't make much difference whether the
function signature allows one" then it would not be too much of an imposition
to accommodate me?  Please.

Thanks, guys.
