Hello Markus,

The XML Query and XSL WGs discussed your request at our June 27 meeting. 
We will consider support for this type of non-deterministic function when 
we begin work on the next version of Functions & Operators.

It would help us if you could explain your need for this function.

                                                -- Andrew
