I think this should definitely be in the spec - changing names is need by users
(see the XQuery Updates Use Cases), and implementing this operations using
add/remove is very expensive, hard (or impossible) to detect by optimizers, and
generally not easy in XQuery.

I also think making it an optional feature is a bad idea. It reduces the value
of the standard a lot, just like with the optional axes. We should not make
features that are really needed by users optional.
