I think you should send the comment, but bear in mind:

1. The op: functions probably shouldn't go in the fo: namespace's
   namespace document because they aren't in that namespace.

2. The op: "namespace" doesn't have a URI because it's an editorial
   technique. Those are all builtin operations, no user or API is
   ever expected to "call" op:multiply.

So to do this right, QT will have to give the op: namespace a
namespace URI and publish the definitions in that namespace. But then
the documents (and implementations) will have to decide what to do
if someone puts select="op:multiply(3,4)" in an XPath expression.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
