Dan,

Thanks for the correction - it's good to know there is a suitable URI. 
Reading the namespace document in the CR version it is:

http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-functions/#name

for all op: and fn: operations.

If we follow the same route, we'd get something like:

http://www.w3.org/2006/sparql-functions/#datatype

and put a namespace document at http://www.w3.org/2006/sparql-functions

EricP - can we automatically generate the namespace doc from rq23?
