+1

And isn't it the case that XQuery can have angle bracketed things
that aren't XML anyway?

  <some-name { funky constructor goo } >

Or did that all get dropped on the floor before it went to Rec?

| (In fact I find text-format inputs deeply disturbing. Rather than
| crow-barring them into XML, shouldn't they be parameters/options?)

Passing the textual query as an option doesn't sound unreasonable to
me.
