(ESED-813) XOR operator in XPath


XPath 2.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20/, http://www.w3schools.com/xpath/xpath_operators.asp, currently does not provide an 'exclusive or (XOR)' Boolean Operator. As a user of XPath, I would view it as a useful addition to the specification. It was mentioned in a working draft http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xquery-operators-20011220/ but resolved at the time simply as "The XOR function will not be introduced at this time."

Please consider this operator for future versions of W3C recommendations http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-operators/ associated with XPath.
