--- Comment #3 from Andrew Coleman <andrew_coleman@uk.ibm.com> ---
At the telecon on 2015-01-27, the working group decided to adopt the following
wording as the resolution to this bug...

[[
An XQuery version number consists of two integers separated by a dot. The first
integer is referred to as the major version number; the second as the minor
number.

Any XQuery processor that implements any version of XQuery with a given major
number MUST accept any query with the same major version number. The processor
MAY reject
queries labeled with a different major version number. The processor MAY reject
queries with the same major version number and a greater minor version number
than the processor recognizes.

In all cases if a query is rejected because of a verison mismatch with the
processor, error XQST0031 MUST be raised.

Note:
  The processor MAY have an option to require that minor versions also match,
or that the minor number of the version in the query is not larger than the
largest minor version understood by the processor in this major release of
XQuery, or to allow more permissve version matching, perhaps with warnings, but
the behaviour is then outside the scope of this specification.

]]
