Dear members of the I18N working group

In your last call comment filed under
you asked for

[16] section 4: As shown in the examples in 2.6.6 and 2.6.7, XQuery can
directly produce XML output. For such cases, it is very important
to make sure that the relevant parameters for serialization
(in particular encoding, but also normalization) can be defined
in an XQuery prolog. There should also be clear requirements on
minimal support for encodings (e.g. UTF-8 and UTF-16) to guarantee

After careful consideration, the XQuery WG decided that no such addition
to the prolog can be mandated, since it is implementation-defined
whether XQuery provides a serialization interface. For example, an
implementation may provide the results as a SAX event stream or DOM
nodes only. In that case the serialization is left to an outside
component and any such parameter would not have any impact.

Therefore we decided to close your comment with no action.

Please let us know, if you agree with this resolution.

- Stephen Buxton,
  on behalf of the XQuery WG
