I don't think we can do the exactly same for XQuery.  There isn't a standard
transliteration of
a XQuery into XML.

We could read in the non-XML syntax XQuery and wrap it with the 'query'
but I'm not certain we want to do that.

Personally, I'd prefer that we not do either.  You can't read other non-XML
sources unless
you have a special component.  Now we're added one for Relax, next XQuery,
and then ... ?
