            Bug ID: 29951
           Summary: [FO31] fn-transform "saved"
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

  Target Milestone: ---

I'm a bit concerned by the fn:transform "saved" delivery-format.

I forget the details now, but fn:put never made it into XQ31.  Instead it was
left in XQ Update.  fn:transform with the "saved" option using a transform
olong the lines of:

<xsl:param name="href" />

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:result-document href="$href">
    <xsl:copy-of select="."/>
  </xsl:result-document>
</xsl:template>

would appear to give fn:put facilities and has all the baggage of a function
with side effects.  

If I'm not mistaken, is this wise?
