  Yes sorry, xs:byte is supported in XQuery.  But not because of
XDM.  XDM defines the hierarchy (based on XML Schema), but XPath
does not mandate all of them to be in the static context.  But
XQuery does, you are right.  XSLT Basic only mandates primitive
atomic types, whilst XSLT SA mandates all of them (the profiles
in XSLT 3.0 is still a work in progress).
