That's true of our component as documented, is what you mean, right?
Not XQuery itself.

I think that's the wrong way to go.  I'd much prefer to handle all
this consistently, and say it has to be

<query><![CDATA[
   declare namespace atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom";
   <atom:feed>{/atom:feed/atom:entry}</atom:feed>
 ]]></query>

Then the xinclude trick will work for it as well.
