Leaving this one not-closed, although I haven't(yet) taken the formal step of
re-opening it.

The change you have made means that there are two equivalent ways to encode
every 0-ary function, you can have either no xqx:arguments child, or an empty
xqx:arguments. There is no semantic difference
that is being encoded here, so why allow both forms?

I think it would be much better to either force xqx:arguments to be present
(my original suggestion) or to allow it to be empty but to change its type to a
non-empty list. (I have no preference between these two alternatives)
