[Bug 5700] [UPD] Updating expressions should not raise XPST0005


           Summary: [UPD] Updating expressions should not raise XPST0005
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Update Facility
        AssignedTo: andrew.eisenberg@us.ibm.com
        ReportedBy: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com

During the analysis phase, err:XPST0005 is raised if any expression other than
() or data() has a static type of empty-sequence(). But all updating
expressions return empty sequences, and we do not want all updating expressions
to be static errors. In the Update spec, Section 4 (Static Typing Feature)
should state that err:XPST0005 does not apply to updating expressions.
