XQuery is inconsistent regarding how the static types are inferred for variable
declarations and function declarations.

If a variable declaration has no type declaration, it is inferred from the
static type of the assignment expression.

If a function declaration has no type declaration, it defaults to item()*.

Many implement the type inferring in function declarations as an optimization,
which is why some pass tests like K-FunctionProlog-18, I guess.

Perhaps the different behaviors should be aligned, just as Mike's suggestion to
align conversion rules for variables. (Yes, this is the wrong place for this.)
