------- Comment #2 from jmdyck@ibiblio.org  2006-09-27 04:30 -------
If you keep it in normalization, then it *won't* be in only one place, it'll be
in 2 or 3 places. (And similarly with the attribute case.) I think you'd be
better off removing it from normalization and keeping it in the dynamic
semantics.

[I think it's a bad idea to take what is conceptually a part of the dynamic
semantics of a construct (e.g., building the content-sequence of an element
constructor) and say that it's not part of the dynamic semantics of the core
construct, rather it's something that will have happened (because of a
normalization injection) to an argument of the construct. It muddies the
correspondence between the FS and XQuery specs, and makes it harder to convince
oneself that they say the same thing (or to detect that in fact they don't). In
short, it's an unnecessary and possibly detrimental complication.]
