           Summary: Static typing of value comparisons
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Formal Semantics
        AssignedTo: simeon@us.ibm.com

"The static semantics for function calls is given in [4.1.5 Function Calls].
The comparison functions all have return type xs:boolean, as specified in
[Functions and Operators]."

Since value comparisons can operate on empty sequences, shouldn't
ValueOp(Expr1, Expr2) type check to xs:boolean? in the general case?
