I would like to point out that these compliance tests were generated using 
the Microsoft grammar, not the grammar of the XQuery Working Draft, so they 
test compliance to the syntax of Microsoft's prototype, not to the XQuery 
language as described in the W3C specification.

The examples in the XQuery Working Draft and in the solutions to the Use 
Cases exercise more features and are compliant with the XQuery language. I 
suggest that people use these for compliance testing.

I write this as an individual, not in my role as an editor of the XQuery
