           Summary: [XQuery] reasoning about fn:error()

There has been a long discussion in Bug 5795 about fn:error().

Many implementations will happily use lazy evaluation to avoid an error in the

(1, fn:error())[1]

Is it also permissible to avoid an error here:

(fn:error(), 1)[2]


Since fn:error has type none, whose quantifier is 1, is it conformant for


to return 1?
