           Summary: updating nodes, then returning values computed from them
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Update Facility

It is unclear if the current XQuery update specification satisfies the use cases that need 
to update some nodes and then return the updated nodes or something computed 
from them. Example: increase the salaries of all employees whose pay is less than their 
bonus, and return these employee nodes. Note that it is not sufficient to perform the 
update and then search for the updated nodes, because the original predicate will no 
longer yield the  same results.
