Clearly not an XQuery 3.0 feature, but a great thing to consider for
3.1.

Subject: Access to Schema API information

I have been implementing a Saxon extension that exposes the Schema
Component Model to XSLT and XQuery applications. It makes heavy use of
the new 3.0 facility to have functions as first-class values, so every
schema component is represented as a function: the argument to the
function is the property name, and the result of the function is the
property value. See here for a description:

Comments welcome. I think this interface is eminently suitable for
standardization.
