Currently the draft says [1]:

"Comparisons on strings take into account the language defined for that
property. Clients MAY specify the language using the xml:lang attribute. If
no language is specified either by the client or defined for that property
by the server or if a comparison is performed on strings of two different
languages, the results are undefined."

I think this needs to be rewritten to:

a) allow a named collation to be specified instead of xml:lang (as per
XPath/XQuery)

b) maybe discovery of supported collations should be added to the QSD.
