Thanks for your report and discussion.  As you infer,
xwx:constructorFunctionExpr is syntactically equivalent to a one-argument
xqx:functionCallExpr.  Semantically, it is slightly different, at least in the
correspondence to XQuery expressions.  Constructors there are function-like in
appearance, but behave more like casts. 

We will discuss your suggestion (that xqx:constructorFunctionExpr is unnecessary
and can be replaced with xqx:functionCallExpr).  In all frankness, I personally
feel that the semantic distinction (even if only mental) justifies having two
different elements.
