Thank you very much for your comments on this subject.  After considerable
discussion, the XML Query WG determined that the solution with the fewest
problems was to simply require white space between the pragma name and the
pragma contents. The principle consequences of this decision are 1)No pragma
contents can actually start with white space (because it would be
indistinguishable from the separating white space), 2)Some otherwise acceptible
pragma text (e.g., (# A-name="A value"#) is invalid, and 3)It is possible to
represent something in XQueryX that is not representable in XQuery.  It is our
conclusion that problem 1) will very likely not affect any existing XQuery
implementations or users, that problem 2) will affect a small number of
implementations or users, and that problem 3) is moot because XQueryX syntax
that does not transform into correct XQuery syntax has no meaning and is thus

Based on your most recent comment (#2), we believe that we have completely
resolved this comment and have marked it CLOSED.  If you disagree, you are
welcome to reopen the bug.
