Ah.  Glad I raised this now.

I agree that that lazy evaluation of "treat as" can give better performance,
but it really did surprise me that it would be permissible here.

I thought that:

$expr treat as xs:someType* 

meant that a run time check should be performed to ensure that $expr in its
entirety was of type xs:someType*, rather than a check that each _used_ item
was of the prime type xs;someType.  Tha's really the clarification I was
looking for.

The former interpretation permits lazy evaluation, while the latter does not.

I'd agree with Comment #4 wholeheartedly though.
