The definition of fn:dateTime (from section 5.2 of the spec) is:
fn:dateTime($arg1 as xs:date, $arg2 as xs:time) as xs:dateTime

In the examples (5.2.1) it is stated that:
fn:dateTime(xs:date("1999-12-31"), xs:time("12:00:00")) returns
xs:dateTime("1999-12-31T12:00:00").

Section 5.1 states:
The form of the constructor function for a type prefix:TYPE is:
prefix:TYPE($arg as xs:anyAtomicType?) as prefix:TYPE?

Under the static typing feature the example should raise a type check error, as
xs:date and xs:time have return types xs:date? and xs:time? respectively.

In order for the example to make sense (and to be consistent with other
constructor functions) fn:dateTime should have the following signature:

fn:dateTime($arg1 as xs:date?, $arg2 as xs:time?) as xs:dateTime?

and it should return the empty sequence if either of the parameters are the
empty sequence.
