Christophe,

This is the right group to submit your comment in support of maps in 
XQuery.  Unfortunately, the requirement arrived too late for the 
feature to be included in XQuery 3.0 (including XPath 3.0), but we 
have already incorporated it as a requirement for the putative next 
version of XQuery.

Thanks very much for your message!
    Jim
