I'm trying to understand how XQueryX handles namespaces.

It appears to use the xsd:QName data type for things such as the names of
variables. But namespace declarations in the query prolog are modelled as
namespaceDecl elements, not as XML namespace declarations. For the QName to
be schema-valid, this means the namespace will have to be declared twice,
once in an xmlns="..." declaration, and once in a namespaceDecl element. Is
this the intent?

It would be useful if at least one of the examples used namespaces...
