= is defined using existential quantification since XPath 1.0. Redefining the 
meaning of () = () to be true would break this so I don't think this change 
request can be accommodated (and I certainly am against this change now). 

We had long discussions on whether to remove the quantification semantics from 
= early on (when you were able to participate), but the backwards-
compatibility argument won out.

Best regards
