The XQuery spec doesn't explicitly say what information a module is "required
to disclose" under separate compilation (since the spec doesn't address
separate compilation). Rather, it's implicitly required to disclose whatever
information the implementation needs in order to behave conformantly. For
public functions, this clearly has to be more than just signatures, as that's
not enough to detect if a variable depends on itself (for instance).
