Clearly not the case.

Also untrue. There are systems (like the cloud) where they make less sense than
others, but that is not a reason to suggest that the many other XQuery
implementations where they do make sense should lose this facility.

> - they are untestable

Not a reason to remove functionality.

See above.

> - if implemented, they create a security breach

Can you please explain this further? It's not obvious what you're referring to
here.
