           Summary: Context-dependent constructor functions
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath 3.0

In section 3.1.6 (named function references) we say

If the function referenced by a NamedFunctionRef is a context-dependentFO30
built-in function [err:XPST0112].

[which is not the usual editorial style, but that's by-the-by]

Similarly in 3.1.5: It is a static error if a static function call is a partial
function application and the identified function is a context-dependentFO30
built-in function [err:XPST0112].

Constructor functions for xs:QName, xs:NOTATION, and other namespace-sensitive
types should also be included in this category. 

The spec for function-lookup does not restrict the rule to built-in functions:

If the function that is identified is ·context-dependent·, fn:function-lookup
returns a function 

but it would be useful to add an example to demonstrate that
namespace-sensitive constructors are also affected.
