Microsoft Corporation has raised a formal objection to the working group's 
resolution of this issue.
Michael Rys has explained this position in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xsl-query/2005Sep/0055.html

"We understand the backwards-compatibility implications of the proposed
change, but we feel that the improved semantics and simplicity of the
proposal as outlined in the comment would improve the usability and
adoption of XQuery. We are of the opinion, that we have now the chance
of fixing some of the warts of the earlier design to not affect XQuery
1.0 going forward, and we are disappointed that the XQuery WG decided to
not take the step of providing the best forward-looking semantics while
still providing some form of backwards-compatibility option as outlined
in bug 1430."
