--- Comment #11 from Henry Zongaro <zongaro@ca.ibm.com> ---
Jidanni, sorry for the late update on this issue.  At the joint teleconference
of the XSLT and XQuery working groups of 25 September 2012,[1] the working
groups decided to resolve your request through the addition of a new
"item-separator" serialization parameter.

The item-separator is a string, and if present, each item in the serialized
result is separated by its value.  The serialization parameter affects all
output methods, not just the text output method.

So, if the sequence to be serialized was <X>1</X>,<Y>2</Y>, and the value of
the item-separator was the LINE FEED character, the serialized result for the
XML output method would be

<X>1</X>
<Y>2</Y>

and for the TEXT output method would be

1
2 

Note that the value of the parameter is only inserted between items in the
original sequence that is to be serialized.  So if the value of the
item-separator was LINE FEED, and the sequence to be serialized under the TEXT
output method was

<p>My <em>first</em> paragraph.</p><p>My <em>second</em> paragraph.</p>

then the serialized result would be

My first paragraph.
My second paragraph.

You can see the detailed description in the new working draft of Serialization
3.0.[2]
