Hi Andrew,

I hope that the most recent editor's draft of XProc satisfies all
of your concerns, http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/langspec.html

| This message said:
| I reviewed the latest XProc draft [1], specifically section 7.2.9, 
| p:xquery,  and I have the following concerns:
| - no way to pass a single document as the context item

For consistency with the description of p:xslt, we've made the first
document that arrives on the source port the context item. All of the
documents remain the default collectin.

| - no mapping to our static and dynamic context

I've tried to clarify how I think (with some modifications)
does this, but if you think I'm still wrong, please let me know.

| - no way to make reference to an xquery file

Fixed. We added p:data which can read a non-XML document.

| - no way to use XQueryX


| - I don't understand "The result of the XQuery is a sequence of documents
|   constructed from an [XPath 2.0] sequence of elements. Each element in 
| the
|   sequence is assumed to be the document element of a separate document."

I think we've already talked that one through.

If you think there are still problems with the XQuery step, please let
me know.

                                        Be seeing you,

                              | and we are so, and they and we go very
                              | well together.-- Santayana
