           Summary: The need for a simple declarative update language
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Update Facility

Recent discussions and requests seem to indicate that the update language
taskforce is working on extending XQuery into a scripting/programming language.

Given the amount of time that it takes to get a specification finished, I
strongly urge the working group to give us a declarative update language (and
the transforms for XQuery) as quickly as possible and postpone any such
programming language extensions to the next release. There is a vast
consistuency out there that wants an interoperable update language that is
declarative in nature, and not yet another web programming language.
