The XQuery and XSLT working groups would like to thank you for your bug report,
which we discussed at our teleconference on 2009-10-13. Although the
functionality in question is not yet published, the working groups expect to
make the following changes:

(1) Referring to function items without specifying the arity.

The working groups decided to make no change for this.

(2) Allowing reference to functions in the op: namespace.

The working groups decided to make no change for this.

(3) Partial application of more than one argument.

The working groups decided to allow question marks ("?") in place of argument
expressions for both FunctionCall and DynamicFunctionInvocation to signify
partial application. The number of argument expressions plus the number of
question marks must equal the number of arguments that the function or function
item accepts. The fn:partial-apply() function will be removed.

Please close this bug report if you are satisfied with these solutions.
