For sure XQueryX is in a more specific context than what the MathML
Content Markup design for, just like XQueryX is in a more specific
context than what the XML and URI is design for.

I have no doubt that XQueryX should represent XQuery both on syntatic
and semantic level and for sure it won't be a simple task. However, if
everyone carry this kind of argument in the design of their work, then
no one will ever use any 'another markup language', right? I hope
someone will consider this issue and at least research the issues
before conclude to a different route.
