I feel strongly that we should not exclude real-life test cases such as the
functx tests from our suite simply because they do not meet a self-imposed rule
on static typing. The fact is, many implementations of XQuery do dynamic
typing, and it's useful to implementors and users to know that these
implementations are interoperable. We should mark the tests in the catalog as
not passing static typing, but otherwise leave them unchanged.

As for the namespace not being example.com, it seems a frivolous objection. Who
benefits from the work needed to make the change?
