At their meeting today, the WGs approved the request for FS 1.1 to provide
a specific static typing rule for calls to fn:trace.

The original submission suggested that the type be inferred "similarly to
fn:reverse()", which is:

    statEnv |- (FN-URI,"reverse")(Type) : prime(Type)  quantifier(Type)

but for fn:trace, it shouldn't be necessary to factor the type. The static
type of the call can simply be the static type of the first argument.
That is:

    Type2 <: xs:string
    statEnv |- (FN-URI,"trace")(Type1, Type2) : Type1

Given this decision, I am marking this issue resolved-fixed. (I'm not sure
who should close it, Liam Quin or Frans Englich.)
