--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
Concerning ForExprType010, the values are decimal rather than double/float, and
the type xs:decimal does not have a negative zero in its value space.

Concerning orderBy29, the last result in the sequence is formed by converting
"-0" to decimal (giving zero) and then multiplying by the double value -1e0.
First the decimal zero is converted to the double (positive) zero, then this is
multiplied by double minus one. The IEEE rules are that +0e0 times -1e0 gives
negative zero.

So I believe both tests are correct.
